Memcached is a widespread caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a customer searches for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be completed considerably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for web shops, since every time a specific web page is visited, the app sends a database request to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux cloud web hosting that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can get with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, 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 add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-demand sites with large-sized databases and plenty of users. Thus, you can enhance the speed of every script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and make use of its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your information. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single regularly visited website, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its type, including those based on popular web-based apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and many companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to optimize the performance of their sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just a couple of clicks. You can improve the performance of any site, no matter what script-powered app you rely on or how heavy the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount grows significantly with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching content every time somebody opens your website, so, once enough content has been cached, you will notice the lowered load on your dedicated server and the optimized performance of your website. Memcached is being used by many websites, among them famous portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which verifies the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
