Memcached is a widely used distributed memory object caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your sites significantly in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a user conducts a search for some 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 performed considerably quicker. This goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for e-shops, since anytime a web page is opened, the application sends a database request to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux shared hosting offered by us. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can acquire with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for regularly visited sites with very large databases and lots of visitors. Thus, you can increase the performance of every script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-driven web application, you can use it for every site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom application, etc. You can request the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things define how many websites will use the Memcached system and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can make use of Memcached with any type of site and both you and the site visitors will quickly distinguish the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this memory caching system as soon as the server is ready, without needing to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are truly powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-intensive websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to optimize the overall performance of very busy Internet sites without effort and you’ll observe the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database calls. You can take full advantage of the system with any database-powered portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems such as WordPress and Joomla.
