Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a visitor conducts a search for a specific product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be completed much quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for e-commerce portals, as every time a particular web page is accessed, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Website Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each website hosting account that we’re offering and in case you wish to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache information, so for a lot of websites (or for one traffic-intensive site), you may want to get more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, each script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will load amazingly fast.
