Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching system, which can boost the speed and the performance of your Internet sites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a user conducts a search for some product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be executed much quicker. This is valid for all types of database-powered applications and not only for e-commerce portals, as every time a given web page is opened, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a cloud web hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your shared web hosting package with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the necessary PHP extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you’ve got a popular site with lots of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans that we offer and use its full capacity for any script-powered site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things show the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your info. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for one popular site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those that are based on popular web apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and plenty of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with only a few clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-based software application you’re using or how busy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount rises enormously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching info every time someone accesses your site, so, once enough data has been cached, you’ll detect the decreased load on the server and the improved performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is used by many sites, among them famous portals like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which confirms the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
