Memcached is a famous memory caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when a customer conducts a search for a specific product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be completed noticeably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for online stores, since anytime a specific web page is visited, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any old info.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with just a few mouse clicks. The data caching platform is suitable for any script-based application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-made one, and based on your necessities, you will be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you manage a popular Internet site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. Memcached will boost the overall performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS

When you acquire a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the data caching platform comes with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you have popular Internet sites, you’ll be able to accelerate their overall performance without efforts and the reduced load will permit you to keep using your current package rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven app, no matter if you’ve built it on your own or you are using a ready-made one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by us if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with just a few clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any website, regardless of what script-powered software application you are using or how large the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount rises significantly with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching info anytime somebody opens your website, so, as soon as sufficient data has been stored, you’ll distinguish the decreased load on the dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of your site. Memcached is being used by plenty of websites, including popular portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a confirmation of the effectiveness of the caching system.
