Memcached is a widespread caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your websites substantially if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if somebody searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be completed considerably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a given web page is visited, the app sends a database query to get the data 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 If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting account that we are offering and in case you wish to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in several simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache information, so for many websites (or for one large-size site), you’d better order more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With the Memcached caching system, any script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will load faster than the speed of light.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get Memcached as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-driven web application, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our servers, irrespective of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-built one, etc. You can request the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things determine the number of the sites that will use Memcached and how much system memory the system will be able to use in order to cache your content. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of system memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any kind of site and both you and the site visitors will quickly perceive the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any site, irrespective of what script-driven web app you are using or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount rises substantially with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching content anytime someone browses your site, so, as soon as enough data has been stored, you will detect the decreased load on the server and the optimized performance of your Internet site. Memcached is being used by lots of websites, among them popular portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
