Memcached is a famous content caching system, which can accelerate the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if someone conducts a search for a particular product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be carried out much faster. That goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for e-stores, since anytime a given page is opened, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

When you host script-driven websites in a website hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached object caching system to your plan with just a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the required extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you own a resource-demanding site with a lot of data, you may need more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup takes several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much data can be cached, i.e. there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use Memcached to boost the speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on popular web-based applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the memory caching platform comes with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run large-sized sites, you will be able to boost their overall performance without efforts and the reduced load on your Virtual Private Server will allow you to keep your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache content depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven application, regardless of whether you have built it yourself or you’re using a ready-made one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can improve the overall performance of any website, regardless of what script-powered app you rely on or how popular the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises considerably with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching info anytime somebody browses your website, so, once sufficient info has been cached, you’ll distinguish the reduced load and the enhanced overall performance of the site. The Memcached system is used by plenty of sites, among them popular portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a confirmation of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
