Memcached is a popular object caching system, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites significantly in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when a client searches for a specific product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be completed considerably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for web stores, since every time a specific page is accessed, the app connects to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

The Memcached object caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud website hosting offered by us and you can begin using it the moment you enable it, as the PHP extension that it requires so as to function properly is already installed on our advanced cloud platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each shared web hosting plan and a new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 MB, specifies the total size of the content that the system can cache. A popular site with a large-sized database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so in case you wish to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any moment with a few mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much content can be cached, in other words – there’re two different upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached to increase the loading speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on famous Internet apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this data caching system once your server is completely functional, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have picked, but as our servers are very powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-hungry Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to improve the overall performance of extremely busy Internet sites with no effort and you will detect the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database requests. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven online portal, including those that are based on popular CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
