Memcached is a widespread object caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites considerably in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if somebody searches for a given product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be executed notably quicker. This goes for all types of database-powered applications and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a page is visited, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-based sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached caching system to your plan with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the required extension is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, you can begin using it right 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 amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a resource-requiring website with a lot of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
