Memcached is a famous content caching system, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your websites tremendously in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a client searches for a particular product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be carried out considerably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, as anytime a specific page is opened, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably 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any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux web hosting offered by our company. It is available as an upgrade, which you can enable with just a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the websites that you wish to use it for. The first part defines the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for high-traffic websites with very large databases and numerous concurrent visitors. Thus, you can supercharge the speed of every script-powered site hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the data caching platform’s setup takes several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much information it will cache, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to improve the loading speed of any script-driven site, including those based on widely used Internet apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it needs so as to work correctly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can start using the caching platform the moment your brand-new Virtual Private Server is completely ready. The memory that Memcached can use depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the low-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to enhance the performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to decrease the load even if you’ve got content-loaded script-driven online portals with multiple visitors. Memcached can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom-made one, and you’ll detect the better performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering 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 Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can optimize the performance of any site, irrespective of what script-powered software application you rely on or how busy the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases substantially with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching data anytime somebody opens your site, so, as soon as sufficient information has been stored, you will detect the reduced load on your dedicated server and the enhanced overall performance of your Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by plenty of sites, including popular portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which confirms the efficiency of the caching system.
