Memcached is a famous distributed memory object caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when someone searches for a given product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be executed significantly faster. That goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for web shops, as every time a particular page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Website Hosting

When you host script-driven websites in a website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your hosting plan with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed extension is already installed on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you run a popular website with a lot of data, you may need more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans that we are offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things specify the number of the sites that can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to cache your info. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single traffic-consuming website, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on popular software apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and many companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the performance of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this caching system as soon as your dedicated server is fully operational, without needing to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you have selected, but as our servers are remarkably powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-requiring sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 GB. This will allow you to increase the performance of extremely busy websites effortlessly and you’ll distinguish the difference soon after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can make use of the Memcached system with any database-powered online portal, including those that are based on widely used CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
