Memcached is a widely used memory caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if someone searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be executed notably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, as every time a particular page is accessed, the app sends a database query to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached object caching system is available as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting that we’re offering and you will be able to start using it as soon as you enable it, since the extension that it requires so as to run properly is already available on our innovative cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each shared web hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the total size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-heavy site with a large database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you need to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any point with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated service offered by our company and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things show how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one traffic-intensive Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its type, including those that are based on widespread Internet applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the distributed memory caching platform is available with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got resource-hungry Internet sites, you will be able to accelerate their performance effortlessly and the lowered load on the Virtual Private Server will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, irrespective of whether you have built it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one like Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated service offered by us and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on popular web apps – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each server comes with a different amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the load speed of very busy websites greatly, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start caching content as soon as it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you will distinguish the enhanced overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced server load. Lots of websites use the Memcached caching system to boost their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
