Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites considerably in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if somebody searches for a certain 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 noticeably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for shopping portals, as every time a particular page is accessed, the app sends a database request to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached caching system with all Linux shared web hosting packages that we’re offering. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large-size databases and lots of users. In this way, you can enhance the performance of every script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages and since it works with any script-driven software application, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what app you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-created application, etc. You can add the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things determine the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two things are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and the website visitors will quickly perceive the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages offered by us when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform through the section with the same name. The configuration requires a couple of mouse clicks and you will see the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to store data depends on the particular VPS plan that you’ve chosen, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several traffic-consuming sites. You can use Memcached with websites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet application and lower the load on your VPS server, which will allow you to continue using the current package rather than switching to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which confirms its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with just several clicks of the mouse. You can increase the performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-driven web application you are using or how large the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases significantly with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching data each time someone browses your website, so, once enough info has been stored, you will perceive the decreased load on the server and the enhanced overall performance of your Internet site. The Memcached system is used by lots of websites, including famous portals like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which proves the efficiency of the caching system.
