Memcached is a commonly used object caching system, which can improve the speed and the performance of your websites tremendously if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when someone searches for some product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be completed significantly quicker. This goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online stores, since every time a particular web page is accessed, the app sends a database query to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached data caching system is available as an upgrade with every Linux cloud hosting package offered by our company and you’ll be able to start using it once you add it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to perform correctly is pre-installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each hosting package and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use Memcached, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-intensive Internet site with a very large database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you wish to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with several clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the memory caching platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much content it will cache, in other words – there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to improve the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web-based applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached object caching platform by default and you can set it up for any Internet site that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing data as users open your website, so you’ll notice the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for numerous Internet sites or for a very heavy site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will permit you to boost the speed of any database-driven Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
