Memcached is a widely used data caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when somebody searches for a given product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be performed notably quicker. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for web shops, as every time a specific web page is opened, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every website hosting account that we are offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache data, so for numerous sites (or for one frequently visited site), you’d better get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With the Memcached caching system, any script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers will load lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the content caching platform’s activation requires a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much information can be cached, in other words – there’re two different upgradable features – the instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use the Memcached platform to boost the loading speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on widely used applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The configuration takes several clicks of the mouse and you will notice the difference in the performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to cache data depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve chosen, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-requiring websites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other web app and reduce the load on your VPS, which will enable you to continue using the current plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a proof of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can optimize the performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-powered application you are using or how busy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases immensely with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will begin caching info every time someone browses your site, so, as soon as enough content has been cached, you’ll notice the decreased load on the dedicated machine and the enhanced performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is being used by numerous websites, including popular portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows the effectiveness of the caching system.
