Memcached is a widespread distributed memory object caching system, which can improve the speed and the performance of your Internet sites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a visitor searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be performed much faster. That goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for e-stores, as anytime a given web page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a shared website hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached memory caching system to your web hosting package with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the necessary PHP extension is pre-installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you’ve got a resource-absorbing website with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you buy any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can add it with only a couple of clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is ideal for any script-driven web app like WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house built app, and based on your requirements, you will be able to select two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a traffic-intensive website with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will improve the performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with each VPS server that we are offering on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the power of this memory caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for numerous sites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your VPS. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-driven applications like OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Shortly after you activate Memcached, it will begin storing content and you’ll note the enhanced overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with only several mouse clicks. You can improve the performance of any website, no matter what script-based app you are using or how heavy the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases considerably with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching data each time somebody accesses your website, so, as soon as enough info has been cached, you will detect the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the enhanced performance of your Internet site. Memcached is being used by many websites, including famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which confirms the effectiveness of the caching system.
