Memcached is a famous object caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your websites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a customer searches for a particular product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be performed considerably faster. That goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for e-commerce portals, since every time a specific web page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached content caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting offered by our company. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with only a few clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large-size databases and plenty of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can boost the overall performance of every script-powered site hosted on our servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add Memcached to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers offered by our company and use its full potential for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the system memory. These things define how many websites can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to store your data. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single large-size site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those based on widely used web apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to optimize the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS plans that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it needs to perform correctly is compiled when the VPS is set up, so you can begin using the distributed memory caching platform as soon as your brand-new server is completely ready. The system memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of numerous sites hosted on the Virtual Private Server simultaneously and to lower the load on the machine even if you manage popular script-powered portals with plenty of visitors. Memcached can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom-developed one, and you will observe the better overall performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by us and the one and only requirement is that the server 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-based apps – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-powered community web portal. Each dedicated server is tied to a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to enhance the loading speed of very busy websites substantially, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will start storing info as soon as it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you will detect the optimized overall performance of your websites and the lowered load on your dedicated machine. Numerous sites use Memcached to improve their efficiency, including famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
