Memcached is a commonly used data caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a customer searches for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be carried out considerably quicker. This goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for shopping portals, since anytime a web page is accessed, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting account offered by our company and if you would like to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in several simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache data, so for a lot of websites (or for one resource-hungry site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, each script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will load amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers offered by our company and use its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your info. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one large-size Internet site, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its type, including those based on widespread web-based apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and plenty of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the data caching system as soon as your dedicated server is up and running, without needing to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have chosen, but as our servers are quite powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-intensive sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 GB. This will allow you to increase the overall performance of extremely busy Internet sites without effort and you will detect the difference shortly after Memcached begins caching database queries. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven portal, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
