Unlike traditional hosting providers, ChemiCloud offers object caching on your website free of charge. This tutorial will show you how to enable Memcached on your website.

What is Object Caching?

Object caching refers to the storage of database results, and it helps the system not to process the same queries over and over again. This caching system is particularly useful for websites with heavy databases.

What is Memcached?

Memcached is an open-source memory object caching system that a website can use to help accelerate page load times. Memcached can significantly help improve website performance.
