Memcached is a widely used memory caching system, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites significantly in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a visitor conducts a search for a given product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be performed noticeably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online stores, as anytime a page is accessed, the app sends a database query to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also create 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in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is available as an upgrade with every Linux cloud web hosting package offered by our company and you’ll be able to begin using it the moment you order it, as the extension that it needs so as to function properly is already present on our advanced cloud platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with each and every plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use Memcached, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A heavy-traffic site with a large-sized database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you wish to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with a few mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The caching platform is suitable for any script-based web application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom one, and based on your necessities, you will be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you have a traffic-hungry website with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will optimize the overall performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster loading speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this memory caching system once the server is assembled, without the need to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve picked, but as our servers are astonishingly powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-consuming sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to optimize the overall performance of extremely heavy sites with ease and you will notice the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
