Memcached is a commonly used caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your sites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a client searches for a given product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be completed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online shopping portals, as anytime a particular page is accessed, the application sends a database query to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached caching system is offered as an upgrade with every cloud hosting that we are offering and you will be able to begin using it as soon as you activate it, since the extension that it requires in order to function properly is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each shared web hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, determines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-heavy site with a large-size database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so in case you would like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with a few clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans that we offer when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the data caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The configuration takes a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to cache data depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve picked, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-consuming sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other web application and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will enable you to continue using the current VPS hosting package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a proof of its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with only several clicks of the mouse. You can accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-powered application you are using or how busy the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows immensely with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching information anytime someone opens your site, so, as soon as enough content has been stored, you’ll notice the decreased load on the server and the enhanced overall performance of the website. Memcached is used by lots of sites, among them popular portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which proves the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
