Memcached is a famous caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when someone conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be carried out noticeably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, as every time a specific page is accessed, the app sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-based sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your web hosting package with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the PHP extension required for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order 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 have a frequently visited website with lots of content, you may need more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the account, you can add it with only a few mouse clicks. The content caching platform is ideal for any script-powered web application like WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made one, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you own a frequently visited website with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will improve the performance of your sites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on famous Internet applications – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated server comes with a certain amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the loading speed of very heavy sites seriously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will start storing content once it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you’ll distinguish the optimized overall performance of your websites and the lowered load on your dedicated machine. Plenty of websites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficacy, including popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
