Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites greatly in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a visitor searches for a particular product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be carried out notably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for e-commerce portals, since every time a page is visited, the application sends a database query to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
If you host script-driven sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your web hosting plan with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you run a frequently visited site with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
