Memcached is a commonly used caching system, which can increase the speed and the performance of your websites immensely in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if a customer conducts a search for some product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be carried out much faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, as every time a specific web page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting plan that we’re offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to order it in several simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache data, so for a lot of sites (or for one single traffic-intensive site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, every script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will load extremely fast.
