Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching system, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your sites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when someone conducts a search for a specific product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be completed notably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for web shops, as anytime a web page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a cloud web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached caching system to your plan with just a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the necessary extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a traffic-intensive website with a lot of data, you may need more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with just a couple of mouse clicks. The object caching platform is suitable for any script-based software app like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed one, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you have a traffic-consuming website with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. Memcached will enhance the performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster load times.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this content caching system as soon as your dedicated server is up and running, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are remarkably powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to increase the overall performance of very popular Internet sites effortlessly and you will detect the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database queries. You can take full advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
