Memcached is a famous caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when a user conducts a search for some product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be executed notably faster. This goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for Internet shops, since anytime a given page is opened, the app sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux hosting offered by our company and you can start using it once you order it, since the PHP extension that it requires so as to work properly is already available on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each web hosting plan and a brand new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic Internet site with a very large database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you wish to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given point with a couple of clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based web app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our servers, regardless of what application you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-built app, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things specify the number of the websites that will use Memcached and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any sort of site and both you and your visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform via the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The activation requires a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to cache content depends on the given Virtual Private Server package that you’ve picked, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple busy websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other app and reduce the load on your virtual server, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which shows its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can boost the performance of any website, regardless of what script-driven web application you rely on or how large the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases seriously with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching information every time someone accesses your site, so, once enough content has been cached, you’ll see the lowered load on the dedicated machine and the enhanced performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is being used by plenty of websites, including popular portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of the effectiveness of the caching system.
