Memcached is a commonly used caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your websites tremendously if 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 when a user searches for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be completed much quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online shops, since every time a web page is opened, the application connects to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any old information.

Memcached in Hosting

If you host script-based sites in a hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached data caching system to your web hosting package with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our innovative cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes 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 in case you’ve got a large-sized site with a lot of content, you may require more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can add it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory object caching platform is suitable for any script-based app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built one, and based on your needs, you will be able to select two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you manage a traffic-heavy Internet site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will increase the performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster load times.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this caching system once the dedicated server is completely ready, without having to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve chosen, but as our servers are incredibly powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-heavy sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to increase the performance of extremely heavy websites with ease and you will distinguish the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any database-powered website, including those that are based on famous CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
