Memcached is a popular object caching platform, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your sites tremendously 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 client searches for a certain product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be performed considerably faster. That goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for web shops, as every time a particular page is visited, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached content caching system is offered as an upgrade with each and every Linux website hosting package that we are offering and you can begin using it the moment you activate it, as the extension that it requires in order to perform correctly is already installed on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each hosting plan and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use Memcached, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the total size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-heavy website with a large-size database may need more memory to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you would like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things define how many sites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to store your content. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not linked to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large-size website, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular web apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and many companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to optimize the performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup requires a few mouse clicks and you’ll see the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to cache information depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you have picked, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple traffic-consuming websites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other script and reduce the load on your virtual server, which will allow you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package instead of switching to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a confirmation of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we are offering and the only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on widely used Internet applications – for instance, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each dedicated server comes with a particular amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the load speed of very popular sites noticeably, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will start storing content once it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you will see the enhanced performance of your sites and the reduced load on your dedicated machine. Lots of websites use the Memcached caching system to improve their effectiveness, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
