Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your sites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if somebody searches for a particular product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be executed much quicker. That goes for all types of database-powered applications and not only for Internet shops, since anytime a particular page is accessed, the app sends a database request to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every web hosting plan offered by our company and in case you’d like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in several easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache info, so for numerous sites (or for one single regularly visited site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will open extra-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages and since it works with any script-based software app, you can use it for every site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what app you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom-created app, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things show how many sites will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your content. The two things are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and your visitors will swiftly spot the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires so as to perform correctly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can start using the object caching platform the moment your brand-new VPS server is ready. The system memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given plan, but even with the low-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to improve the performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to decrease the load even if you have resource-consuming script-powered web portals with multiple users. The Memcached platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom one, and you will detect the faster overall performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that we are offering and the only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on widely used web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated server comes with a given amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to enhance the load speed of very heavy websites tremendously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will begin storing content the moment it is enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll notice the improved performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. Numerous websites use Memcached to improve their efficiency, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
