Discover what Memcached is and why many people use it for their databases.
Memcached is a famous data caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites substantially in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when a client searches for a given product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be performed noticeably faster. This goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for online shops, since every time a particular page is accessed, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much 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 visitors will not see any old info.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
If you host script-based websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached caching system to your hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the required PHP extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a large-scale site with a lot of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
