Memcached is a popular content caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your sites substantially if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if somebody searches for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be carried out significantly quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, as every time a web page is accessed, the application connects to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-powered sites in a shared hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your hosting package with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary PHP extension is already installed on our advanced cloud platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a high-traffic website with lots of content, you may need more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated services and since it works with any script-based application, you can use it for any website that you host on our platform, irrespective of what app you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-built application, etc. You can add the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In other words, these things define the number of the sites that will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your info. The two things are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and your site visitors will quickly notice the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you obtain a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the distributed memory caching platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own heavy websites, you’ll be able to improve their overall performance with no effort and the lowered load on the VPS will allow you to keep your current VPS hosting plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache content depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, regardless of whether you’ve set it up on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the machine with only a couple of clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any site, irrespective of what script-powered software app you are using or how busy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount grows substantially with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching info every time somebody accesses your site, so, once sufficient information has been cached, you will notice the lowered load on the dedicated server and the enhanced performance of the website. Memcached is used by many sites, including famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which verifies the effectiveness of the caching system.
