Memcached is a widely used distributed memory object caching platform, which can improve the speed and the performance of your Internet sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if someone conducts a search for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be executed notably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for shopping portals, as every time a page is accessed, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use the Memcached caching system with all cloud website hosting plans offered by us. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can get with just a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for frequently visited websites with very large databases and many concurrent visitors. Thus, you can increase the loading speed of every script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.

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 effortlessly, since the distributed memory caching platform’s activation requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much data can be cached, in other words – there are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to boost the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous Internet apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages offered by us when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform through the section with the same name. The setup requires a few mouse clicks and you will see the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store content depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have picked, but at any rate 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 Internet sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other web app and decrease the load on your server, which will enable you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which confirms its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just a couple of clicks. You can increase the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-powered app you are using or how large the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows significantly with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will begin caching content every time somebody browses your site, so, as soon as enough data has been stored, you will notice the lowered load on the dedicated machine and the improved performance of the site. Memcached is being used by a lot of sites, including famous portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a proof of the efficiency of the Memcached system.
