Memcached is a widely used object caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your websites tremendously in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a visitor conducts a search for a specific product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be completed noticeably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for e-stores, as every time a given web page is visited, the app sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your plan with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the PHP extension needed for it is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud 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 websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a large-scale website with lots of content, you may need more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a few clicks. The data caching platform is ideal for any script-driven software app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed one, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to choose two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you run a busy site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will optimize the performance of your sites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better load speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching system the moment the dedicated server is configured, without having to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you’ve chosen, but as our servers are very powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-heavy websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to enhance the performance of extremely busy sites without any effort and you will note the difference soon after the Memcached caching system starts caching database queries. You can take full advantage of the caching system with any database-driven site, including those based on widely used CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
