Memcached is a widespread object caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your sites greatly in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a visitor conducts a search for a given product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be completed considerably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for web shops, since every time a page is accessed, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your web hosting plan with just a few clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the necessary extension is pre-installed on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – 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 MB and you can add memory as many times as you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you’ve got a resource-requiring site with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we are offering and use its full potential for any script-powered site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the system memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single busy website, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on popular Internet apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the object caching platform through the section with the very same name. The configuration takes a few clicks of the mouse and you will distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ to cache data depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you have picked, but in any case it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple large-size websites. You can use Memcached with sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based application and reduce the load on your virtual server, which will permit you to continue using the current VPS hosting package instead of moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a confirmation of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those based on famous web-based applications – for example, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated machine is tied to a specific amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to increase the loading speed of very busy sites noticeably, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will start caching information as soon as it’s enabled, so shortly after that, you will distinguish the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load. Plenty of websites use Memcached to increase their efficacy, including famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
