Memcached is a widely used memory caching system, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites considerably in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if someone conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be carried out much faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a given web page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with every Linux shared hosting package offered by us and you will be able to begin using it the moment you add it, since the PHP extension that it requires so as to work properly is already present on our advanced cloud platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with every hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic Internet site with a large-sized database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you would like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given time with several clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached data caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based software application, you can use it for every site that you host on our platform, no matter what app you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-developed application, etc. You can order the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things determine how many sites will use the Memcached system and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your info. The two features are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of system memory. You can use Memcached with any type of site and both you and your website visitors will quickly note the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

If you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the platform is available with all VPS servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got large-sized sites, you’ll be able to accelerate their overall performance without any effort and the reduced load on your Virtual Private Server will permit you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server package rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, no matter if you’ve created it yourself or you are using a ready-made one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the machine with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can boost the overall performance of any site, no matter what script-powered software application you’re using or how large the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows seriously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching info each time someone accesses your website, so, once enough information has been stored, you will distinguish the lowered load on your dedicated server and the enhanced performance of the site. The Memcached system is used by a lot of websites, including popular portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which confirms the efficiency of the Memcached system.
