Memcached is a famous content caching system, which can increase the speed and the performance of your Internet sites immensely in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a user searches for a certain product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be performed significantly quicker. That goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online stores, as anytime a particular page is accessed, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting package that we are offering and in case you wish to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use in order to cache info, so for lots of sites (or for one single traffic-consuming site), you’d better get more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, each script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers will load unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the caching platform’s setup requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much info can be cached, i.e. there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is exceptionally flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to accelerate any script-driven website, including those that are based on famous web applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The activation takes several clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ to store info depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several resource-requiring sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other web app and reduce the load on your VPS, which will allow you to keep using the current VPS hosting package rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which shows its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated servers that we’re offering and the only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on famous apps – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community website. Each dedicated machine comes with a different amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to optimize the loading speed of extremely popular websites considerably, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start storing info once it is enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll note the enhanced performance of your websites and the decreased load on your server. Lots of websites use Memcached to enhance their efficacy, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
