Memcached is a widespread object caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your sites immensely if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when someone conducts a search for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be performed noticeably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for e-commerce portals, since every time a web page is opened, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux shared website hosting packages that we are offering. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can obtain with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part shows the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for traffic-heavy sites with large databases and plenty of users. Thus, you can supercharge the performance of any script-driven site hosted on our servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and since it works with any script-powered web app, you can use it for every site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-built application, etc. You can request the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things show the number of the sites that will use the Memcached system and the amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your data. The two features are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of system memory. You can use Memcached with any kind of website and both you and your site visitors will quickly see the difference in the performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this object caching system once the dedicated server is ready, without needing to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have chosen, but since our servers are rather powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-hungry websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will permit you to optimize the performance of extremely busy sites without any effort and you’ll observe the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database queries. You can use the system with any database-driven web portal, including those based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
