Memcached is a commonly used object caching platform, which can increase the 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 calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a client searches for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be completed notably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a given page is opened, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can use the Memcached content caching system with all shared hosting that we’re offering. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can get with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for regularly visited sites with large databases and numerous simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can optimize the performance of any script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers effortlessly.
