Memcached is a popular caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your sites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if somebody conducts a search for a given product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be performed much quicker. This goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, since every time a specific web page is visited, the app connects to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any old info.

Memcached in Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every hosting account that we offer and in case you wish to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to activate it in several easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache information, so for lots of sites (or for one regularly visited site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any point. With the Memcached caching system, every script-based Internet site hosted on our servers will load blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the memory caching platform’s setup requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to increase the loading speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used software apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you get a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the memory caching platform is offered with all servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage large websites, you will be able to improve their performance with no effort and the reduced load on your VPS will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be tremendous. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, no matter if you have developed it yourself or you are using a ready-made one such as Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by us and the sole condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those based on famous web-based apps – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered community website. Each dedicated server comes with a different amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to boost the speed of extremely large sites considerably, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will begin caching data as soon as it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you’ll detect the enhanced performance of your websites and the lowered load on the dedicated machine. Numerous websites use Memcached to enhance their effectiveness, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
