Memcached is a popular memory caching system, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a user searches for some product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be performed significantly quicker. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, as anytime a page is accessed, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting offered by us and you’ll be able to begin using it as soon as you order it, as the extension that it needs so as to work correctly is already installed on our advanced cloud platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each web hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A popular site with a large database may need more memory to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you’d like to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any point with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and use its full potential for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things define how many websites can use Memcached and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your data. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one popular site, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its nature, including those based on widely used web-based applications like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the speed of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated servers that we offer and the one and only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on widely used software apps – for example, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each dedicated machine comes with a specific amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to optimize the load speed of extremely busy sites considerably, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start caching information the moment it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you’ll observe the enhanced overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on your dedicated server. Plenty of sites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficacy, including famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
