Memcached is a widely used content caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your sites considerably if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when someone searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be carried out notably faster. This goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for web stores, as every time a web page is opened, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux web hosting packages offered by us. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for high-traffic websites with large-size databases and numerous simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can improve the performance of any script-driven site hosted on our servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s activation takes several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much content it will cache, in other words – there’re two different upgradable features – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is amazingly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to boost the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous web applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The activation takes several clicks and you will detect the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that Memcached can take advantage of to cache info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve selected, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several busy sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet application and decrease the load on your VPS, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server plan instead of moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which verifies its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated servers hosting packages that we are offering and the sole condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on widely used web-based apps – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-powered social network. Each dedicated server is tied to a different amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to accelerate the load speed of extremely large sites substantially, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin storing information the moment it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you will observe the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced server load. Lots of websites use Memcached to boost their efficacy, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
