Memcached is a famous caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a customer searches for a certain product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be executed significantly faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online stores, since every time a particular web page is accessed, the application sends a database query to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your web hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the PHP extension needed for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you wish. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a busy website with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service and since it works with any script-based web application, you can use it for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-developed application, etc. You can add the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things determine how many sites will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two features are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached with any sort of website and both you and the site visitors will quickly perceive the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the distributed memory caching platform is offered with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own traffic-intensive Internet sites, you will be able to enhance their overall performance without effort and the lowered load on the virtual machine will enable you to keep your current package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache information depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered app, regardless of whether you have written it yourself or you’re using a ready-made one like Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with just several clicks. You can boost the performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-based web application you’re using or how popular the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount grows tremendously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching content anytime someone browses your site, so, once sufficient information has been stored, you’ll distinguish the decreased server load and the optimized performance of your Internet site. Memcached is used by many websites, including famous portals like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which shows the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
