Memcached is a commonly used caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your sites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a visitor conducts a search for a given 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 completed significantly quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online shops, since every time a given page is opened, the app sends a database request to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system is available as an upgrade with each and every Linux shared web hosting package that we are offering and you’ll be able to start using it once you enable it, as the extension that it needs so as to function properly is already present on our leading-edge cloud platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every shared hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A frequently visited site with a large database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you would like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with several clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we’re offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the system memory. These things determine how many websites can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your data. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for one large-scale website, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its nature, including those based on popular web applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the speed of their sites.
