Memcached is a commonly used memory caching platform, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your websites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a visitor conducts a search for a given product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be carried out considerably faster. That goes for all types of database-powered applications and not only for web stores, since anytime a specific web page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date information.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 Shared Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every shared web hosting plan offered by our company and if you want to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in several easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache info, so for lots of sites (or for one single traffic-intensive site), you may want to get more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, each script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will load extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with only a couple of clicks. The object caching platform is suitable for any script-based application like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom one, and depending on your requirements, you will be able to select two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a traffic-consuming Internet site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will optimize the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better load times.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by our company and the only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on widely used apps – for example, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven social networking site. Each dedicated server comes with a given amount of system memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to increase the speed of extremely heavy sites noticeably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin caching information the moment it is activated, so shortly after that, you’ll observe the optimized performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. Lots of Internet sites use Memcached to improve their efficacy, including famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
