Memcached is a widespread data caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your websites greatly in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a visitor searches for a certain product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be completed notably quicker. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, as every time a particular page is visited, the application sends a database query to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any old information.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

The Memcached data caching system is available as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting that we offer and you’ll be able to start using it as soon as you add it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to function correctly is already present on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every hosting package and a brand-new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive site with a large-sized database may require more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you would like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given moment with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your account, you can activate it with just a few mouse clicks. The platform is ideal for any script-driven app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a tailor-made app, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a traffic-heavy site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. Memcached will enhance the performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with every VPS server offered by our company provided that you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to use the maximum capacity of this data caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared package. This will enable you to use Memcached for lots of sites, irrespective of how popular they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the server. The caching system is suitable for script-based web applications like Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will begin caching data and you’ll observe the improved overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can improve the overall performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-driven web app you’re using or how popular the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows substantially with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching data anytime someone opens your site, so, as soon as sufficient data has been stored, you will detect the decreased load on your dedicated machine and the improved overall performance of the website. The Memcached system is being used by a lot of websites, including famous portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms the efficiency of the Memcached system.
