Memcached is a famous data caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites considerably if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a customer searches for a given product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be completed notably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online shops, as anytime a particular web page is opened, the application sends a database query to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you can add Memcached to your shared hosting package with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the PHP extension needed for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you wish. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a resource-demanding website with lots of content, you may need more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.
