Memcached is a widespread distributed memory object caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites greatly in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when someone conducts a search for some product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be performed considerably quicker. This goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for shopping portals, since every time a web page is visited, the app connects to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

You can take advantage of Memcached with all shared website hosting that we’re offering. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can add with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first one determines the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for regularly visited sites with large-size databases and a lot of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can enhance the speed of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers offered by us and use its full potential for any script-powered site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the system memory. These things specify how many websites can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to store your information. You can select them separately, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one large-scale site, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those based on widespread web apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes as standard with all VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires to function correctly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching platform the moment your brand-new VPS is fully functional. The memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the given plan, but even with the less powerful ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to optimize the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the Virtual Private Server simultaneously and to lower the load on the virtual machine even if you’ve got resource-heavy script-driven web portals with a lot of visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom-built script, and you will distinguish the better overall performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers that we’re offering and the one and only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on famous applications – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each dedicated machine comes with a certain amount of system memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to enhance the speed of very popular websites seriously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start storing data the moment it is activated, so shortly after that, you will distinguish the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on the server. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficacy, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
