Memcached is a widely used distributed memory object caching platform, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a client conducts a search for a certain product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be carried out noticeably faster. This goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, since every time a particular web page is opened, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each cloud hosting package offered by our company and if you’d like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache info, so for a lot of websites (or for one single resource-absorbing site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will load extremely fast.
