Memcached is a commonly used memory caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your sites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when a customer conducts a search for a particular product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be executed considerably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for e-shops, since anytime a given page is opened, the application sends a database query to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

If you host script-based sites in a shared web hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your plan with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you own a traffic-intensive website with a lot of content, you may need more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.
