Memcached is a famous distributed memory object caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites considerably in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a client searches for a specific product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be performed considerably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for online stores, as anytime a specific page is accessed, the app sends a database query to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of Memcached with all shared hosting that we are offering. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can get with only a couple of clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part shows the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for high-demand websites with very large databases and lots of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can accelerate the overall performance of any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and use its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your information. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one large website, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on popular web applications like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to enhance the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we offer when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the memory caching platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The setup takes a few mouse clicks and you will detect the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ to cache information depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you have picked, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several content-heavy sites. You can use Memcached with websites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet app and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will allow you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server plan instead of moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only several mouse clicks. You can improve the overall performance of any site, regardless of what script-powered app you’re using or how popular the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows immensely with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching data anytime someone browses your website, so, as soon as enough info has been stored, you will detect the reduced load on the dedicated server and the optimized overall performance of the Internet site. Memcached is used by a lot of sites, among them famous portals like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which confirms the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
