Memcached is a famous caching platform, which can increase the speed and the performance of your sites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if a customer searches for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be completed significantly faster. This goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, as every time a particular web page is opened, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting package offered by us and in case you wish to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to activate it in several easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache info, so for multiple websites (or for one single traffic-intensive site), you may want to order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, any script-based site hosted on our servers will load amazingly fast.
