Memcached is a widely used caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if a client conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be carried out much quicker. That goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for e-commerce portals, as anytime a particular web page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a couple of mouse clicks. The distributed memory caching platform is suitable for any script-based web app like Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made app, and based on your needs, you will be able to choose two different features – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a popular Internet site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will increase the overall performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much faster loading speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can optimize the performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-based web application you rely on or how heavy the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows tremendously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching info each time someone opens your site, so, once enough content has been cached, you’ll notice the reduced load on your dedicated server and the optimized performance of the website. Memcached is used by lots of websites, among them famous portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is an evidence of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
