Memcached is a widely used content caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your sites immensely 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 customer conducts a search for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be completed considerably faster. This is valid for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, as anytime a web page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a website hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your plan with only a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is already 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 memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a larger website with lots of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with every VPS server offered by our company provided that you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the power of this object caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared hosting plan. This will permit you to use Memcached for plenty of websites, irrespective of how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading the virtual server. The Memcached caching system is excellent for script-based software applications like WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you activate Memcached, it will start caching data and you will see the optimized overall performance of your websites.
