Memcached is a widely used object caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your websites significantly in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a user searches for a given product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be executed considerably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, as anytime a particular page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux website hosting plans offered by us. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can add with just a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you wish to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for heavy-traffic sites with very large databases and a lot of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the performance of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans offered by us and use its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the memory. These things specify how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your information. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not tied to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single large-scale site, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those that are based on widespread software apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and plenty of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you acquire a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the distributed memory caching platform is offered with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got resource-demanding sites, you can accelerate their overall performance without effort and the reduced load on your virtual machine will permit you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache info depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered web application, no matter if you have set it up on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company and the one and only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used software apps – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community website. Each dedicated server is tied to a given amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate the loading speed of very heavy sites significantly, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start caching info as soon as it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll observe the improved overall performance of your websites and the reduced load. Many sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their efficacy, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
