Memcached is a commonly used data caching platform, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your websites considerably in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a visitor searches for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be executed considerably faster. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for Internet shops, since every time a given web page is opened, the application sends a request to its database 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 If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated information.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting package offered by our company and if you would like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache content, so for many websites (or for one resource-absorbing site), you may want to get more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, any script-driven site hosted on our servers will open blazing-fast.
