Memcached is a widespread caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites immensely 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 if a visitor conducts a search for a certain product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be executed considerably quicker. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for shopping portals, since every time a page is accessed, the application sends a database request to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your web hosting plan with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the necessary PHP extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a traffic-hungry site with a lot of data, you may require more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the caching platform’s activation requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using Memcached 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 information can be cached, i.e. there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we do not bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to speed up any script-powered site, including those based on widely used Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
