Memcached is a famous memory caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the performance of your sites substantially in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a client conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be completed considerably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, as anytime a given page is visited, the application sends a database query 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 updated, so the users won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux cloud web hosting packages offered by us. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can get with just a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part shows the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for traffic-intensive websites with very large databases and plenty of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can improve the performance of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with just a few clicks. The object caching platform is ideal for any script-driven web application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made application, and depending on your demands, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you run a regularly visited Internet site with lots of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will increase the overall performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster loading times.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with only a few clicks of the mouse. You can optimize the performance of any site, no matter what script-driven app you are using or how heavy the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises enormously with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching information each time someone accesses your site, so, as soon as sufficient info has been stored, you’ll notice the lowered load on the server and the optimized overall performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by plenty of websites, including popular portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the caching system.
