Find out what Memcached is and precisely why a great number of try it for their databases.
Memcached is a widely used caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your sites significantly in case 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 a user conducts a search for a particular product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be completed notably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, since anytime a particular page is visited, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated info.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
If you host script-powered sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your shared hosting package with only a few clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the PHP extension required for it is already installed on our innovative 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 (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you have a resource-consuming 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.
