Memcached is a widely used content caching system, which can boost the speed and the performance of your Internet sites greatly in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a visitor searches for a given product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be carried out notably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for Internet shops, as every time a given web page is visited, the application sends a database query to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Hosting

If you host script-powered sites in a hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your shared hosting plan with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the needed PHP extension is already installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you wish. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you have a large-size website with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting service that we offer and make use of its full potential for any script-powered site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things show how many sites can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single resource-hungry website, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on popular software apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and lots of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to optimize the performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the data caching platform is available with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run frequently visited Internet sites, you can increase their performance with no effort and the reduced load on your VPS server will enable you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven web app, no matter if you’ve set it up on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the machine with only several clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-based app you rely on or how large the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount grows seriously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching content anytime someone visits your website, so, once enough content has been cached, you will perceive the lowered server load and the improved overall performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is being used by lots of websites, among them popular portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the caching system.
