Memcached is a widely used memory caching platform, which can boost the speed and the performance of your sites tremendously if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a client conducts a search for some product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be executed much faster. This goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for e-shops, since every time a particular page is opened, the app sends a database request to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your web hosting package with just a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a traffic-intensive site with a lot of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, as the data caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much info can be cached, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to accelerate any script-powered site, including those that are based on widely used web-based applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you get a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the content caching platform comes with all VPS servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you have resource-intensive sites, you will be able to boost their overall performance without efforts and the lowered load on your virtual server will allow you to keep using your current plan instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache info depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be great. You can use Memcached with any database-driven web app, no matter if you have set it up on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated web hosting 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-driven Internet site, including those that are based on popular web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each server is tied to a given amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to enhance the loading speed of very heavy sites greatly, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start storing info once it’s activated, so shortly after that, you will note the optimized performance of your sites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. A lot of websites use Memcached to improve their effectiveness, among them popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
