Memcached is a widespread memory caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites considerably in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if a visitor conducts a search for a specific product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be executed notably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for e-commerce portals, since every time a particular web page is visited, the application connects to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached memory caching system with all cloud hosting plans that we offer. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can get with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the websites that you wish to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for traffic-heavy sites with large-sized databases and many concurrent visitors. In this way, you can optimize the performance of every script-based website hosted on our servers with ease.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain any of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached platform as standard and you can activate it for any website that you host on your dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching content as people visit your Internet site, so you will notice the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for a large number of websites or for a very heavy site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to enhance the speed of any database-powered site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your dedicated server.
