Memcached is a widely used content caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your websites immensely if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if someone conducts a search for a particular product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be carried out noticeably quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for e-stores, as every time a specific page is accessed, the app sends a database request to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system comes as an optional upgrade with every shared hosting offered by our company and you will be able to begin using it as soon as you add it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to work properly is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every shared web hosting package and a new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which comes in increments of 16 MB, defines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A frequently visited website with a large-sized database may need more memory to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you wish to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given point with several clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, as the data caching platform’s activation requires several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much data can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we do not tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to accelerate any script-powered site, including those based on widely used web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform via the section with the exact same name. The activation takes a few mouse clicks and you’ll notice the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to cache info depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you have chosen, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several traffic-consuming websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet application and decrease the load on your server, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS hosting package rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which shows its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can increase the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-powered web application you are using or how popular the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases seriously with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching content every time someone browses your website, so, once sufficient data has been cached, you’ll perceive the decreased server load and the optimized overall performance of the website. Memcached is used by many sites, among them popular portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which demonstrates the efficiency of the Memcached system.
