Memcached is a commonly used memory caching platform, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when somebody searches for a particular product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be carried out significantly faster. This goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a given page is accessed, the app sends a database request to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached memory caching system with all hosting that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can get with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first one defines the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for frequently visited websites with large databases and lots of visitors. In this way, you can improve the loading speed of any script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers offered by us and use its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to store your data. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not tied to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one traffic-hungry site, for instance. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its type, including those based on widespread apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and many companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with only a few clicks. You can increase the overall performance of any website, regardless of what script-based web app you are using or how popular the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows immensely with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching data anytime someone accesses your site, so, once sufficient data has been cached, you’ll detect the lowered load on the server and the enhanced performance of your site. Memcached is being used by plenty of websites, including popular portals like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which proves the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
