Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites considerably if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when a visitor searches for a given product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be executed considerably faster. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, as every time a particular web page is opened, the app sends a query to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux cloud hosting that we’re offering. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can get with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for regularly visited sites with large databases and plenty of visitors. In this way, you can accelerate the speed of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.
