Memcached is a widespread memory caching platform, which can boost the speed and the performance of your websites considerably if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a customer conducts a search for a particular product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be carried out notably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for e-stores, since every time a particular page is opened, the app sends a request to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached content caching system with all shared website hosting plans that we are offering. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can obtain with only a few clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first part determines the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for popular websites with large databases and many simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can increase the overall performance of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes for free with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those based on popular Internet applications – for instance, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated machine is tied to a specific amount of system memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to boost the loading speed of very large websites enormously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will begin caching content the moment it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll detect the optimized performance of your sites and the decreased load on your dedicated server. Numerous sites use the Memcached system to boost their efficiency, including popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
