Memcached is a widely used distributed memory object caching platform, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a client conducts a search for a certain product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be carried out noticeably faster. This goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, since every time a particular web page is opened, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each cloud hosting package offered by our company and if you’d like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache info, so for a lot of websites (or for one single resource-absorbing site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will load extremely fast.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with only a few mouse clicks. You can improve the performance of any website, no matter what script-powered software application you rely on or how busy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases enormously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching data anytime someone opens your site, so, as soon as sufficient content has been cached, you’ll detect the decreased server load and the optimized performance of your Internet site. The Memcached system is used by lots of sites, including popular portals like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which demonstrates the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
