Memcached is a famous data caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a customer searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be completed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for online stores, as anytime a specific page is visited, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux shared website hosting packages that we offer. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part reveals the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers 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 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large databases and plenty of visitors. In this way, you can boost the speed of any script-powered website hosted on our servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s activation requires several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much info it will cache, i.e. there’re two different upgradable features – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to speed up any script-powered site, including those based on famous web-based apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS

When you order a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the caching platform comes with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own frequently visited sites, you’ll be able to boost their overall performance with no effort and the lowered load on the VPS will enable you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store content depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be tremendous. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered application, no matter if you have set it up yourself or you are using a ready-for-use one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering if you pick 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 site hosted on the machine with only several clicks. You can improve the performance of any website, regardless of what script-powered software application you’re using or how popular the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount grows significantly with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching information every time someone browses your website, so, as soon as enough data has been stored, you’ll perceive the reduced load on your server and the enhanced overall performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is being used by a lot of websites, among them famous portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which proves the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
