Memcached is a widespread content caching system, which can boost the speed and the performance of your websites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if somebody conducts a search for some product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be performed much quicker. This is valid for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, as every time a specific page is accessed, the application connects to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Web Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a web hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached caching system to your plan with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the PHP extension needed for it is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a high-traffic website with lots of data, you may require more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-based application, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our platform, regardless of what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-created one, etc. You can request the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In other words, these things show how many Internet sites will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your content. The two features are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any sort of website and both you and the site visitors will quickly perceive the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated servers offered by our company and the sole condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on famous Internet apps – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered social network. Each dedicated server comes with a certain amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to improve the loading speed of very large websites enormously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will begin caching info as soon as it’s activated, so soon after that, you will distinguish the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased server load. Lots of sites use the Memcached system to increase their efficiency, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
