Memcached is a commonly used data caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a visitor searches for a particular product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be performed noticeably faster. That goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for e-commerce portals, as anytime a specific web page is visited, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system comes as an upgrade with each and every Linux website hosting offered by us and you can begin using it once you add it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to perform correctly is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each and every shared web hosting plan and a brand new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the websites that can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 MB, indicates the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A heavy-traffic site with a large database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you’d like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any moment with several clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

To put it in simple terms, these things determine the number of the sites that will use the Memcached system and how much system memory the system will be able to use to cache your info. The two features are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached with any sort of website and both you and the visitors will swiftly spot the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

This will allow you to use Memcached for multiple websites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the VPS server. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-driven web apps like WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will begin caching data and you will distinguish the improved overall performance of your websites.

You can use the content caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on popular software apps – for example, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated machine comes with a particular amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to enhance the loading speed of very popular sites considerably, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin storing data the moment it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you will note the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on the server.
