A large number of users employ Memcached so as to raise database performance. What is Memcached?
Memcached is a widespread distributed memory object caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a client conducts a search for a particular product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be executed significantly quicker. This is valid for all types of database-driven applications and not only for e-stores, since anytime a specific page is accessed, the application sends a database query to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any outdated info.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host script-driven websites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your web hosting package with only a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the needed extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start 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 amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you wish. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a high-traffic site with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
