Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if somebody searches for a specific product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be completed noticeably quicker. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-commerce portals, as every time a page is opened, the app connects to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated info.
Memcached in Website Hosting
The Memcached memory caching system comes as an upgrade with each Linux website hosting that we’re offering and you can begin using it as soon as you add it, as the extension that it needs so as to perform correctly is already available on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every shared web hosting package and a new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A busy site with a large-sized database may require more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you want to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with a couple of clicks.
