Memcached is a widespread data caching system, which can improve the speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if a client conducts a search for some product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be carried out notably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for Internet shops, as anytime a given web page is opened, the app sends a database query to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting
package that we’re offering and if you wish to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our advanced cloud platform, you’ll be able to order it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll 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 sites that can use the Memcached caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use in order to cache info, so for plenty of websites (or for one single busy site), you’d better order more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With the Memcached caching system, each script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers will load amazingly fast.
