Memcached is a widely used data caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if a customer conducts a search for a particular product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be performed notably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for web stores, since anytime a page is opened, the application connects to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached content caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting plans offered by us. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can acquire with just a few clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for popular websites with large-sized databases and lots of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can improve the loading speed of every script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the platform’s setup takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much info it will cache, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to speed up any script-driven website, including those that are based on popular web-based applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans offered by our company in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform through the section with the same name. The setup requires a couple of clicks of the mouse and you will distinguish the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store information depends on the given VPS plan that you have picked, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several data-loaded sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other app and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will allow you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which proves its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated servers that we are offering and the only requirement 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-driven site, including those based on famous software applications – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each dedicated server comes with a given amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate the loading speed of extremely popular sites tremendously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin caching info as soon as it is activated, so soon thereafter, you’ll observe the improved performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load. A lot of sites use Memcached to enhance their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
