Memcached is a popular content caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if a client searches for a particular product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be performed notably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for Internet shops, as anytime a particular page is visited, the application sends a database query to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached data caching system is offered as an upgrade with each cloud hosting that we offer and you’ll be able to begin using it the moment you add it, since the PHP extension that it needs so as to run properly is already available on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every web hosting package and a brand-new section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use Memcached, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A busy site with a large-sized database may require more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given time with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the object caching platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to increase the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached comes by default with all VPS ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires in order to work properly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can begin using the data caching platform the moment your brand-new VPS server is fully ready. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the low-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to increase the overall performance of numerous websites hosted on the server at the same time and to decrease the load even if you have regularly visited script-powered web pages with a lot of users. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom-built one, and you will notice the faster performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by our company if you choose 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 server with just several mouse clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-driven web app you rely on or how busy the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows substantially with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching information anytime someone browses your website, so, as soon as sufficient information has been cached, you will perceive the decreased server load and the optimized overall performance of your website. The Memcached caching system is being used by lots of sites, including famous portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
