Memcached is a famous distributed memory object caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if someone conducts a search for a specific product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be completed significantly faster. This goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for Internet shops, since every time a web page is visited, the app sends a request to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every shared web hosting package that we are offering and if you wish to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet 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 numerous websites (or for one large site), you’d better order more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, each script-based site hosted on our servers will open blazing-fast.
