Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory caching system, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if a visitor conducts a search for some product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be performed considerably faster. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, since anytime a specific page is accessed, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your web hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a traffic-intensive website with lots of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. The platform is ideal for any script-based web application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-made app, and based on your requirements, you’ll be able to select two different features – how many websites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you run a traffic-hungry website with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. Memcached will optimize the performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better loading times.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with only a couple of clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-based software app you rely on or how large the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows considerably with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching info each time someone accesses your website, so, once sufficient data has been stored, you’ll see the decreased load on your dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of your Internet site. Memcached is used by numerous sites, including famous portals like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is an evidence of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
