Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites substantially in case 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 somebody searches for a specific product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be executed notably faster. That goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for web stores, since anytime a page is accessed, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any outdated information.
Memcached in Website Hosting
If you host script-powered sites in a website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached caching system to your shared web hosting plan with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you have a heavy-traffic website with a lot of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
