Memcached is a famous distributed memory object caching system, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your Internet sites immensely if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if someone conducts a search for a particular product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be executed noticeably faster. This goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for web stores, since every time a particular page is opened, the app sends a database query to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

If you host script-powered websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to add Memcached to your hosting plan with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension needed for it is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a traffic-consuming site with a lot of content, you may require more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you order one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with just a couple of mouse clicks. The distributed memory caching platform is perfect for any script-powered software application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-built one, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to select two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a high-demand Internet site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will increase the performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster load speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated hosting that we are offering and the only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on famous web-based apps – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-powered social network. Each server comes with a different amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the speed of extremely large websites significantly, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will start caching information as soon as it’s activated, so soon thereafter, you will observe the optimized performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on the dedicated server. Plenty of Internet sites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
