Memcached is a widely used caching platform, which can boost the loading 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 API/database and the responses that are returned, so when somebody searches for a particular product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be completed significantly faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for web shops, since every time a specific page is opened, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every shared hosting account that we are offering and if you would like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache content, so for numerous sites (or for one single resource-demanding site), you should order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With Memcached, every script-based website hosted on our servers will load extremely fast.
