Memcached is a widely used memory caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your websites substantially in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when someone 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 procedure will be executed significantly faster. That goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for Internet shops, as every time a page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached content caching system with all cloud hosting that we offer. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can enable with only a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for busy sites with large-size databases and a lot of users. Thus, you can accelerate the performance of every script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and use its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one traffic-consuming website, for example. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widely used Internet applications like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and a lot of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the overall performance of their sites.
