Memcached is a widely used object caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your Internet sites substantially if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if somebody conducts a search for a given product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be completed much quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for web shops, since every time a web page is visited, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting that we’re offering and you’ll be able to start using it as soon as you enable it, since the PHP extension that it needs so as to run correctly is already installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every web hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use Memcached, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A popular website with a large database may require more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you would like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any point with a few clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the caching platform’s setup requires several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much info can be cached, i.e. there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to improve the loading speed of any script-driven website, including those based on famous software apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with each and every VPS server that we are offering on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the full capacity of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package. This will allow you to use Memcached for numerous sites, irrespective of how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the virtual machine. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-powered web applications such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will begin storing info and you’ll observe the optimized performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated web hosting plans that we offer and the sole requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on popular web applications – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven social networking site. Each dedicated server comes with a particular amount of system memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to improve the load speed of very heavy websites greatly, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start caching info the moment it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you will see the improved overall performance of your sites and the decreased load on the server. Plenty of websites use the Memcached system to enhance their effectiveness, among them famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
