Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching system, which can increase the speed and the performance of your sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a customer searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be executed much quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for Internet shops, since anytime a page is accessed, the app connects to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can use the Memcached content caching system with all Linux shared hosting packages offered by our company. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can get with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for busy sites with large-sized databases and many simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can boost the performance of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, as the platform’s activation takes a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to improve the speed of any script-driven website, including those based on widely used web-based apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is included by default with each virtual private server that we offer if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the full potential of this data caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for plenty of sites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your virtual server. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-powered software apps like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you activate the Memcached system, it will begin storing information and you will perceive the enhanced overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with just a few mouse clicks. You can optimize the overall performance of any site, no matter what script-based web application you are using or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises significantly with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching information anytime somebody accesses your website, so, as soon as enough data has been stored, you’ll detect the lowered load on the dedicated machine and the optimized performance of your site. The Memcached caching system is being used by many sites, including popular portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is an evidence of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
