Memcached is a popular data caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a user conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be performed much quicker. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, as anytime a particular page is accessed, the app sends a database query to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all cloud web hosting that we’re offering. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for high-demand websites with large databases and plenty of simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can boost the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the memory caching platform’s setup requires several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to boost the loading speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on famous apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans offered by us if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the caching platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The setup takes several clicks of the mouse and you will see the difference in the performance of your sites almost immediately. The amount of memory that Memcached can take advantage of to store content depends on the given VPS plan that you have selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several popular sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other app and decrease the load on your virtual machine, which will enable you to continue using the current VPS package rather than migrating to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is an evidence of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we’re offering and the sole condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on famous web applications – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each server comes with a specific amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to increase the loading speed of extremely large websites enormously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will start storing info the moment it is enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll note the enhanced overall performance of your sites and the decreased load on the dedicated machine. Numerous Internet sites use the Memcached system to increase their effectiveness, among them famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
