Memcached is a widespread object caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your websites greatly in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when a customer searches for a particular product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be executed much quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for web shops, since every time a particular web page is opened, the app connects to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting plan that we are offering and in case you want to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache info, so for a lot of websites (or for one resource-absorbing site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, any script-based Internet site hosted on our servers will load incredibly fast.
