Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching system, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your sites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a user searches for a specific product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be performed much faster. This goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online shops, since every time a web page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached memory caching system with all cloud web hosting plans offered by our company. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for high-traffic sites with large databases and many concurrent visitors. Thus, you can enhance the overall performance of every script-based website hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with all VPS plans ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs to perform correctly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can begin using the data caching platform the moment your brand new server is completely operational. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the particular plan, but even with the low-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to accelerate the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the server at the same time and to lower the load even if you own large script-driven portals with plenty of users. Memcached can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-built one, and you will observe the faster performance soon after you start using it.
