Memcached is a commonly used caching system, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your sites substantially if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if someone conducts a search for a specific product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be executed significantly quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online shops, as anytime a specific page is opened, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-powered sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached memory caching system to your hosting plan with just a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you like. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you have a large-size site with a lot of data, you may require more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the caching platform’s setup takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much info can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to boost the loading speed of any script-powered site, including those that are based on famous applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS packages ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs in order to perform properly is compiled when the virtual server is configured, so you can start using the object caching platform the moment your brand-new Virtual Private Server is fully ready. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to improve the performance of numerous sites hosted on the VPS simultaneously and to lower the load even if you have high-demand script-based portals with a lot of visitors. The caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom script, and you will notice the faster overall performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with only a couple of clicks. You can optimize the performance of any site, no matter what script-based software app you rely on or how heavy the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases significantly with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching content anytime somebody opens your site, so, as soon as enough info has been cached, you will see the decreased load on the dedicated server and the improved overall performance of your site. The Memcached caching system is used by a lot of sites, including famous portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which shows the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
