Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory caching system, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites considerably in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a user searches for a particular product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be executed significantly faster. This goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for online shops, as every time a given web page is visited, the app sends a database request to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any old info.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
If you host script-based sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your plan with just a few clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary PHP extension is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, 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 comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you run a resource-hungry site with lots of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
