Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if somebody searches for some product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be carried out notably quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for Internet shops, since anytime a specific web page is accessed, the app sends a database request to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting account that we offer and if you would like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache content, so for plenty of sites (or for one frequently visited site), you’d better order more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, any script-based Internet site hosted on our servers will load unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the platform’s setup takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much data can be cached, in other words – there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we do not tie a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to accelerate any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on popular applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached comes as standard with all Linux VPS hosting services ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs to function properly is compiled when the VPS server is configured, so you can start using the caching platform the moment your brand-new VPS is fully functional. The system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the given plan, but even with the low-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the virtual server simultaneously and to lower the load on the virtual machine even if you own frequently visited script-based web pages with multiple visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom one, and you will notice the better performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated web hosting that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on famous web applications – for instance, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each dedicated server comes with a given amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the speed of very popular sites considerably, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start storing data once it is enabled, so soon after that, you will note the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the reduced load on your dedicated server. Numerous sites use the Memcached system to increase their efficacy, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
