Memcached is a widespread caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the performance of your websites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when someone searches for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be completed noticeably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for web stores, since every time a given page is opened, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-powered sites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your hosting plan with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you want. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a regularly visited site with lots of data, you may require more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated plans that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things indicate how many websites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your data. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not tied to a particular amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-hungry website, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widely used Internet applications like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the distributed memory object caching platform is available with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got resource-hungry sites, you will be able to optimize their performance with no effort and the decreased load on the server will permit you to keep your current plan rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven app, no matter if you’ve developed it yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated servers that we’re offering and the only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on popular web apps – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated server comes with a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the load speed of very popular sites enormously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start storing information the moment it is activated, so soon after that, you’ll observe the optimized performance of your websites and the lowered load. Lots of sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their efficiency, among them popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
