Memcached is a famous content caching platform, which can enhance the loading 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 API/database and the replies that are returned, so when someone searches for a certain product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be executed notably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, as every time a given web page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a shared website hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your web hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the necessary PHP extension is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you like. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you own a high-demand site with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

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 distributed memory object caching system as soon as the dedicated server is configured, without the need to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are really powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will allow you to increase the overall performance of very large sites with ease and you will note the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database calls. You can make full use of the system with any database-powered web portal, including those that are based on widely used CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
