Memcached is a widespread memory caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites immensely if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when somebody conducts a search for a particular product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be performed considerably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online shops, as anytime a given web page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any old information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can use the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux shared hosting that we offer. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can get with just a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first part reveals the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for regularly visited sites with very large databases and many users. In this way, you can improve the performance of every script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The caching platform is perfect for any script-driven app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house built application, and depending on your requirements, you’ll be able to select two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you run a regularly visited website with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will accelerate the performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster loading times.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with just several clicks. You can boost the performance of any site, no matter what script-driven application you rely on or how heavy the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount rises enormously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching information anytime someone accesses your site, so, as soon as enough data has been stored, you will distinguish the decreased load and the optimized performance of the Internet site. Memcached is used by many sites, among them popular portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which proves the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
