Memcached is a widespread object caching system, which can increase the loading 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 responses that are returned, so when somebody conducts a search for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be performed considerably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for online stores, as every time a given page is opened, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any old information.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every web hosting account that we are offering and if you would like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache data, so for lots of websites (or for one single resource-consuming site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will open extra-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-powered web application, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our servers, no matter what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom application, etc. You can request the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things indicate how many Internet sites will use the Memcached system and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your information. The two things are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and your website visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans that we offer and the only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on widely used web-based apps – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each server is tied to a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to enhance the load speed of very popular websites immensely, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will start storing data once it’s enabled, so soon after that, you will notice the enhanced overall performance of your Internet sites and the lowered server load. Many sites use Memcached to boost their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
