Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the performance of your sites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if someone conducts a search for some product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be completed notably faster. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, since anytime a given web page is accessed, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is offered as an upgrade with each Linux shared hosting that we’re offering and you will be able to begin using it the moment you activate it, as the extension that it requires so as to perform correctly is already present on our cutting-edge cloud platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-heavy site with a very large database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you want to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any point with a couple of clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached object caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based application, you can use it for every site that you host on our platform, regardless of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom one, etc. You can order the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things define how many sites will use the Memcached system and the amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your content. The two features are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make use of Memcached with any sort of website and both you and your visitors will swiftly distinguish the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

If you acquire a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the data caching platform is offered with all VPSs that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run content-rich Internet sites, you will be able to enhance their overall performance with ease and the decreased load on the VPS will permit you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to store info depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get no less than several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven web app, irrespective of whether you have created it yourself or you are using a ready-made one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only a couple of clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any website, no matter what script-powered web application you’re using or how heavy the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows immensely with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will begin caching content each time somebody opens your website, so, once enough info has been stored, you’ll see the reduced load on the dedicated server and the improved overall performance of your site. The Memcached system is being used by plenty of sites, among them famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
