Memcached is a popular memory caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a client conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be executed considerably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for Internet shops, since anytime a given page is accessed, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each website hosting plan that we’re offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache data, so for multiple sites (or for one single busy site), you should order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any point. With Memcached, every script-driven website hosted on our servers will load incredibly fast.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you buy a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the memory caching platform comes with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage content-rich websites, you’ll be able to improve their performance without efforts and the reduced server load will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store info depends on the package that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven application, no matter if you have set it up on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one like Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we’re offering in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just several mouse clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-based web app you’re using or how large the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount increases considerably with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching content every time somebody opens your website, so, once sufficient data has been stored, you’ll see the lowered load on the server and the improved performance of the website. The Memcached caching system is being used by a lot of sites, among them famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is an evidence of the effectiveness of the caching system.
