Memcached is a famous memory caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a user searches for a certain product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be performed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for web shops, since 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 site open much faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use Memcached with all Linux cloud website hosting that we are offering. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can add with just a couple of clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for heavy-traffic websites with large-sized databases and numerous simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can enhance the overall performance of any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers without efforts.
