Memcached is a widely used distributed memory caching system, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if someone searches for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be carried out notably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for Internet shops, since every time a specific page is opened, the app sends a database query to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can use the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux shared hosting that we’re offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can order with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for high-demand websites with large-size databases and many concurrent visitors. Thus, you can improve the speed of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated web hosting offered by us and the only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those based on widely used web-based apps – for example, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each dedicated server is tied to a different amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the speed of extremely busy websites substantially, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start caching content as soon as it’s activated, so soon thereafter, you’ll detect the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the decreased load on the server. Numerous sites use Memcached to boost their efficacy, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
