Memcached is a widely used object caching platform, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites substantially in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a client conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be carried out much faster. This goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online shops, as every time a particular web page is accessed, the application sends a database request to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting plan that we are offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache information, so for numerous websites (or for one traffic-hungry site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, any script-based site hosted on our servers will load much faster.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the data caching platform’s setup requires a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting 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’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much data can be cached, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to improve the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web-based applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS hosting ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs to work correctly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching platform the moment your new server is fully operational. The memory that Memcached can use depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the lower-end ones, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to lower the load even if you’ve got traffic-intensive script-based online portals with a lot of visitors. The caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom-made one, and you’ll notice the faster overall performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with just several mouse clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any website, regardless of what script-powered software app you’re using or how busy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount rises tremendously with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching info each time somebody browses your site, so, once sufficient information has been cached, you’ll perceive the decreased load on the dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of your Internet site. Memcached is being used by a lot of websites, among them famous portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
