Memcached is a widely used object caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the performance of your websites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a user searches for a given product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be carried out much faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, as anytime a particular web page is accessed, the app sends a request to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each web hosting account that we are offering and if you want to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache content, so for numerous sites (or for one single traffic-heavy site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers will load incredibly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s activation takes a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is already installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much information it will cache, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is pretty flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to speed up any script-driven Internet site, including those based on famous software apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with each and every VPS server that we’re offering on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra money to be able to take advantage of the full capacity of this data caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared plan. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for plenty of Internet sites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading the server. The caching system is suitable for script-based web applications like OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Soon after you enable the Memcached system, it will start storing information and you will perceive the enhanced overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the machine with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can improve the performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-based application you’re using or how busy the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount grows seriously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will begin caching data each time someone accesses your site, so, once enough content has been cached, you’ll distinguish the lowered load on your dedicated machine and the improved performance of your site. The Memcached caching system is being used by many sites, including famous portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which demonstrates the efficiency of the Memcached system.
