Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a user searches for some product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be completed much faster. This goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for e-stores, since anytime a specific page is accessed, the app connects to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached content caching system with all Linux shared hosting that we are offering. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first one defines the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for high-demand websites with large-size databases and lots of users. Thus, you can accelerate the overall performance of every script-based site hosted on our cloud servers without 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’re offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the amount of memory. These things determine how many sites can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to store your content. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-requiring site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular Internet applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to enhance the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages that we’re offering when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform via the section with the same name. The setup requires a couple of clicks and you will distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to cache info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve chosen, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple data-loaded sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other software application and reduce the load on your virtual machine, which will permit you to keep using the current VPS package rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a proof of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated hosting that we offer and the one and only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used software applications – for example, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each dedicated machine is tied to a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the speed of very heavy websites significantly, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start caching data once it is activated, so shortly after that, you will distinguish the enhanced overall performance of your sites and the reduced server load. Many Internet sites use the Memcached system to improve their effectiveness, among them popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
