Memcached is a widespread caching system, which can boost the speed and the performance of your websites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when someone conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be carried out considerably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for web stores, as every time a particular web page is visited, the application connects to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also generate 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 If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all Linux cloud web hosting offered by us. It is available as an upgrade, which you can acquire with just a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for traffic-heavy websites with large-size databases and numerous visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers with ease.
