Memcached is a widespread distributed memory object caching platform, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites considerably in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a user searches for some product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be completed much quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for web stores, since anytime a particular page is visited, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
If you host script-powered websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached caching system to your shared web hosting package with only a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a resource-requiring website with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is included by default with each and every VPS server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the full power of this data caching system. The more powerful plan you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you will 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 allow you to use the Memcached caching system for numerous Internet sites, regardless of how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading the VPS server. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-driven software apps like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will begin storing content and you will spot the enhanced performance of your websites.
