Memcached is a commonly used content caching system, which can improve the speed and the performance of your websites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if someone searches for some product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be completed noticeably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, since every time a page is visited, the application connects to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a shared hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your plan with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a large site with a lot of content, you may require more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated services offered by our company and use its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your information. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single traffic-heavy Internet site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its nature, including those based on widely used apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is offered by default with every virtual private server that we offer as long as you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the maximum potential of this data caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for data 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 package. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for numerous websites, no matter how popular they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-based software applications such as OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will start storing content and you’ll notice the optimized performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with just several clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-driven software app you’re using or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows enormously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching content each time someone visits your site, so, once enough content has been cached, you’ll detect the lowered load on your dedicated server and the enhanced performance of the website. Memcached is being used by plenty of websites, including famous portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a proof of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
