Memcached is a popular object caching system, which can boost the speed and the performance of your Internet sites greatly in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a client searches for a given product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be performed considerably faster. That goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for Internet shops, since anytime a specific page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux cloud web hosting that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can get with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for busy websites with large databases and numerous concurrent visitors. In this way, you can accelerate the overall performance of any script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get Memcached as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated services and since it works with any script-driven web app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-created one, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things define the number of the sites that will use the Memcached system and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your content. The two features are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of system memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any kind of website and both you and the website visitors will swiftly perceive the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans that we’re offering when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the content caching platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The activation requires several clicks of the mouse and you’ll notice the difference in the performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to store content depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you have chosen, but in any case it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several large-sized sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based application and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will allow you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which verifies its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated hosting services that we are offering and the one and only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on widely used software apps – for instance, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each server comes with a given amount of system memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to boost the speed of very large websites greatly, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start caching information the moment it’s activated, so shortly after that, you will note the improved performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on the dedicated machine. Numerous websites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficiency, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
