Memcached is a widely used content caching system, which can increase the speed and the performance of your sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if a client conducts a search for a certain product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be completed noticeably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for web shops, as every time a page is opened, the application sends a request to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached content caching system with all web hosting offered by our company. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can add with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for regularly visited sites with very large databases and a lot of users. Thus, you can boost the speed of every script-based website hosted on our cloud servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated packages and since it works with any script-driven application, you can use it for any site that you host on our servers, regardless of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-created one, etc. You can request the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things specify how many websites will use Memcached and the amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your data. The two features are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any type of website and both you and the site visitors will swiftly detect the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with all VPS web hosting packages ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs in order to perform properly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can begin using the memory caching platform as soon as your new VPS server is ready. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to increase the performance of multiple websites hosted on the Virtual Private Server at the same time and to decrease the load on the machine even if you run busy script-based portals with numerous visitors. The platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-made one, and you’ll distinguish the better performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by us in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with only several clicks. You can accelerate the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-based web application you are using or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount rises substantially with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching content anytime somebody opens your website, so, as soon as sufficient info has been stored, you’ll see the decreased load on your dedicated server and the enhanced performance of your site. The Memcached caching system is used by plenty of websites, among them popular portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the caching system.
