Memcached is a popular caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your websites greatly 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 returned, so when a client searches for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be completed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for Internet shops, as every time a particular page is opened, the application connects to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-based sites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your plan with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the needed extension is already installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you own a heavy-traffic site with a lot of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we’re offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the amount of memory. These things specify how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your info. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single large-scale site, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those based on popular software apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and many companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the performance of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can increase the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-driven app you are using or how heavy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount rises considerably with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching data anytime someone accesses your website, so, as soon as enough data has been cached, you will see the lowered load on the dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of your website. Memcached is being used by numerous websites, among them popular portals like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which verifies the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
