Memcached is a popular content caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the performance of your sites considerably in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if a client conducts a search for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be executed much faster. That goes for all types of database-powered applications and not only for e-stores, since anytime a particular page is visited, the application sends a database query to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

You can use Memcached with all shared website hosting plans offered by us. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for regularly visited sites with large-size databases and many users. Thus, you can improve the overall performance of any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. The content caching platform is perfect for any script-driven web app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-built app, and based on your demands, you will be able to choose two separate features – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you own a traffic-consuming website with lots of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will boost the performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better load times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with all VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs so as to work correctly is compiled when the virtual server is set up, so you can start using the distributed memory caching platform as soon as your new VPS server is ready. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the low-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the server at the same time and to reduce the load even if you own resource-consuming script-driven web portals with many visitors. The platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom script, and you’ll distinguish the faster overall performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering and the one and only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on famous software applications – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-powered community website. Each server is tied to a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the speed of very popular websites significantly, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will start caching data the moment it’s enabled, so soon after that, you will observe the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased server load. Many sites use the Memcached caching system to improve their efficiency, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
