Memcached is a widely used distributed memory object caching system, which can increase the speed and the performance of your sites substantially in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if someone searches for a given product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be completed considerably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for web shops, as anytime a given web page is accessed, the application sends a database request 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 load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

The Memcached object caching system is offered as an upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to begin using it the moment you enable it, since the extension that it needs so as to run properly is already available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every web hosting plan and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive site with a large-size database may require more memory to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you’d like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-powered app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our servers, irrespective of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-created application, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things determine how many sites will use Memcached and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your data. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can take full advantage of Memcached with any kind of website and both you and the site visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get the Memcached platform as standard and you can set it up for each site that you host on the dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing data as people open your Internet site, so you’ll detect the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the caching platform for a lot of websites or for a very large website without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to optimize the loading speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
