Memcached is a widely used content caching system, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your websites tremendously in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when someone conducts a search for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be executed considerably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, as anytime a specific page is visited, the application sends a database request to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux shared website hosting offered by our company. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can obtain with only a few clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the websites that you wish to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for regularly visited sites with large-size databases and lots of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can boost the overall performance of any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and use its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the amount of memory. These things show the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your information. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not tied to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one resource-requiring Internet site, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its type, including those that are based on widely used web apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans that we offer when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The setup requires a few clicks and you will notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to cache info depends on the given VPS plan that you have selected, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several popular sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet app and reduce the load on your server, which will allow you to keep using the current VPS hosting package rather than moving to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a confirmation of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated web hosting offered by our company and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on popular web-based applications – for example, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-driven social networking site. Each dedicated server is tied to a particular amount of memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to improve the speed of extremely busy websites noticeably, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin caching data the moment it’s activated, so soon after that, you will note the enhanced performance of your websites and the reduced load on the server. Plenty of sites use the Memcached system to increase their efficacy, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
