Memcached is a widely used content caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when someone searches for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be carried out significantly quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for online shopping portals, as every time a given web page is accessed, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each cloud web hosting package that we are offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache information, so for numerous sites (or for one large-scale site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With Memcached, any script-powered site hosted on our servers will open unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks. The caching platform is ideal for any script-based web app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-made app, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to choose two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a frequently visited site with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will optimize the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached comes as standard with all VPS services ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires so as to work correctly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can start using the data caching platform the moment your brand-new VPS is fully functional. The system memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to boost the performance of numerous sites hosted on the server simultaneously and to lower the load even if you run resource-hungry script-powered online portals with plenty of visitors. Memcached can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-made one, and you will detect the better performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated hosting that we’re offering and the sole condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web applications – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-powered social network. Each dedicated server comes with a particular amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to enhance the speed of very heavy sites immensely, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will begin caching data the moment it’s enabled, so soon after that, you will see the improved overall performance of your sites and the lowered load on the dedicated machine. Lots of sites use the Memcached caching system to increase their efficacy, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
