Memcached is a famous object caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites greatly in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a client searches for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be completed much faster. That goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, as anytime a web page is visited, the app connects to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached caching system comes as an upgrade with each Linux cloud web hosting that we offer and you can start using it the moment you enable it, as the PHP extension that it requires so as to work correctly is pre-installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each and every plan and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A frequently visited Internet site with a large-sized database may require more memory to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given point with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with only a few clicks of the mouse. The memory caching platform is suitable for any script-powered application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom application, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to select two separate features – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a traffic-hungry Internet site with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. Memcached will accelerate the performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster load speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this distributed memory object caching system as soon as your dedicated server is fully operational, without needing to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have selected, but as our servers are very powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-demanding sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to enhance the overall performance of extremely heavy Internet sites with ease and you’ll detect the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database calls. You can make the most of the system with any database-driven web portal, including those that are based on famous Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
