Memcached is a famous data caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites considerably if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a client searches for a certain product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be completed notably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a page is accessed, the application sends a database request to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can use the Memcached data caching system with all Linux cloud hosting that we are offering. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can order with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first part defines the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for high-demand sites with large-sized databases and a lot of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can accelerate the loading speed of every script-driven site hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the account, you can add it with just a couple of clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is suitable for any script-powered application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made application, and based on your demands, you will be able to choose two different things – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you run a popular Internet site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. Memcached will optimize the performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes as standard with all Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs so as to perform properly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is configured, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching platform as soon as your new server is fully functional. The memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the low-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to boost the performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS at the same time and to reduce the load on the virtual machine even if you manage resource-requiring script-powered sites with plenty of users. The platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom script, and you will notice the better overall performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by us if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with only several clicks. You can optimize the performance of any website, no matter what script-powered app you’re using or how heavy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount increases seriously with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will start caching information every time someone opens your website, so, as soon as sufficient data has been cached, you will see the reduced load on the dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is used by many sites, including popular portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
