Memcached is a famous memory caching system, which can improve the speed and the performance of your sites substantially in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a user searches 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 much faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, as every time a specific web page is opened, the app sends a database query to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each cloud website hosting package that we’re offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache content, so for numerous websites (or for one single large-size site), you’d better order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any point. With the Memcached caching system, any script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup takes several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much data can be cached, i.e. there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can employ Memcached to speed up any script-driven Internet site, including those based on popular web-based apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the memory caching system as soon as your server is fully functional, without the need to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve chosen, but as our servers are pretty powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to enhance the overall performance of extremely large sites without effort and you’ll note the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database queries. You can make use of the system with any database-driven portal, including those that are based on famous Content Management Systems such as WordPress and Joomla.
