Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a customer searches for a given product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be completed significantly quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a specific page is opened, the application sends a database request to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached object caching system with all Linux shared packages offered by our company. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can order with only a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part shows the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for popular sites with large databases and plenty of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the overall performance of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.
