Memcached is a widely used object caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your Internet sites significantly if 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 user conducts a search for some product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be performed much faster. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for shopping portals, as every time a particular page is accessed, the app sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is available as an upgrade with each and every cloud hosting plan that we are offering and you will be able to start using it once you order it, since the extension that it needs so as to run properly is already installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every web hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the sites that can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A frequently visited site with a large-sized database may need more memory to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given point with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated plans and since it works with any script-driven app, you can use it for each site that you host on our servers, irrespective of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom application, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things specify the number of the sites that will use Memcached and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two features are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any type of website and both you and the website visitors will quickly note the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering and the sole condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those based on famous web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-driven community website. Each server comes with a given amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the loading speed of extremely heavy sites immensely, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will begin storing data the moment it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you will distinguish the improved performance of your sites and the decreased server load. Lots of websites use the Memcached caching system to improve their efficiency, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
