Memcached is a widely used caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your websites tremendously if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when somebody conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be executed noticeably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for web stores, as anytime a web page is accessed, the app connects to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer and you’ll be able to begin using it once you add it, as the PHP extension that it needs in order to function correctly is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every web hosting package and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use Memcached, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A regularly visited site with a large database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you wish to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-based web app, you can use it for any site that you host on our servers, irrespective of what app you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom application, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things specify how many sites will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your content. The two things are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any sort of site and both you and your website visitors will quickly perceive the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available by default with all VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs so as to perform correctly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can begin using the memory caching platform once your brand new VPS server is completely ready. The system memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given plan, but even with the less powerful plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to accelerate the performance of numerous sites hosted on the VPS simultaneously and to decrease the load on the machine even if you’ve got data-rich script-driven online portals with a lot of viewers. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom script, and you’ll observe the faster performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select 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 website hosted on the dedicated machine with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can increase the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-powered software application you rely on or how popular the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount rises significantly with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching information anytime somebody opens your site, so, as soon as sufficient information has been stored, you’ll distinguish the lowered server load and the optimized performance of your website. The Memcached caching system is being used by a lot of websites, including famous portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
