Memcached is a famous distributed memory object caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your sites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if somebody conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be executed considerably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for web shops, as anytime a particular web page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a shared web hosting account with us, you can add Memcached to your hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the needed extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can start 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 websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you wish. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a large-scale site with a lot of data, you may require more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the content caching platform’s setup requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to boost the loading speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on widely used software apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with each virtual private server that we offer as long as you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the power of this caching system. The more powerful VPS package you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for multiple websites, irrespective of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your virtual machine. The caching system is perfect for script-driven applications such as WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached system, it will start storing info and you will distinguish the enhanced overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can improve the performance of any site, no matter what script-based application you rely on or how large the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows substantially with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will begin caching info each time someone accesses your site, so, as soon as sufficient data has been cached, you will perceive the decreased load on your server and the improved overall performance of your Internet site. Memcached is being used by a lot of websites, including famous portals like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which shows the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
