Memcached is a famous memory caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites significantly in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when a client searches for a certain product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be completed notably faster. That goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for e-stores, as anytime 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 open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Hosting

If you host script-based sites in a hosting account with us, you will be able to add Memcached to your plan with just a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a resource-intensive website with a lot of content, you may need more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the platform’s activation takes several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as 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 it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is amazingly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to speed up any script-powered website, including those that are based on widely used apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we are offering and the sole requirement is that the 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 that are based on widely used web-based apps – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community website. Each dedicated machine comes with a particular amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to optimize the loading speed of extremely popular sites significantly, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start storing information once it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll observe the enhanced overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on your dedicated machine. Lots of websites use the Memcached caching system to increase their efficiency, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
