Memcached is a widely used object caching system, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when somebody searches for a certain product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be completed considerably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, as anytime a particular web page is visited, the app sends a query to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Hosting
If you host script-driven websites in a hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your shared web hosting plan with only a few clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is pre-installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a high-traffic site with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and since it works with any script-based application, you can use it for every website that you host on our platform, regardless of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom app, etc. You can request the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things indicate how many sites will use the Memcached system and how much system memory the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two things are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and your visitors will swiftly perceive the difference in the overall performance.

The more powerful Virtual Private Server package you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared plan. This will allow you to use Memcached for plenty of sites, regardless of how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading the virtual machine. The caching system is excellent for script-powered apps like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing content and you’ll note the enhanced overall performance of your sites.

You can optimize the overall performance of any website, no matter what script-based application you’re using or how heavy the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount grows enormously with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching info each time somebody visits your site, so, as soon as sufficient content has been stored, you’ll notice the reduced load on the dedicated server and the improved overall performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is being used by plenty of sites, including famous portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows the efficiency of the caching system.
