Memcached is a popular memory caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites significantly in case 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 if somebody conducts a search for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be performed noticeably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a particular page is accessed, the app connects to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any old information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every shared website hosting account that we’re offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use Memcached at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache content, so for plenty of websites (or for one resource-absorbing site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any point. With Memcached, each script-driven site hosted on our servers will load extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages offered by us and use its full potential for any script-powered site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things indicate the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to store your information. You can select them separately, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single popular Internet site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its type, including those based on widespread applications like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we are offering and the only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous software apps – for example, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated machine is tied to a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to enhance the load speed of very popular websites seriously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will start storing data once it is activated, so soon thereafter, you will see the improved performance of your websites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. Plenty of Internet sites use the Memcached system to improve their efficacy, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
