Memcached is a famous content caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a client searches for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be carried out considerably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for shopping portals, as anytime a particular page is accessed, the application sends a database request to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every web hosting account offered by our company and if you wish to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache information, so for many websites (or for one frequently visited site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With the Memcached caching system, every script-based Internet site hosted on our servers will open amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the platform’s activation requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much content can be cached, in other words – there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we do not tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to boost the speed of any script-driven website, including those based on widely used applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by us and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those based on popular apps – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each dedicated machine is tied to a different amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the loading speed of extremely busy sites considerably, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start storing data once it’s enabled, so soon after that, you’ll observe the enhanced performance of your sites and the lowered load on the server. A lot of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to improve their efficacy, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
