Memcached is a widespread caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your websites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if someone searches for a particular product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be performed significantly quicker. This goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for web shops, as every time a given page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached caching system comes as an upgrade with every cloud hosting that we are offering and you can begin using it as soon as you order it, as the PHP extension that it requires in order to work correctly is already present on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with every hosting plan and a new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use Memcached, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the total size of the content that the system can cache. A frequently visited website with a large-size database may need more memory to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you would like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with a few mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-based application, you can use it for each site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what application you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom one, etc. You can request the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things define how many websites will use the Memcached system and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two features are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of system memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any sort of website and both you and the site visitors will quickly detect the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we are offering when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the content caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The configuration requires a couple of clicks of the mouse and you will see the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ to cache info depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve picked, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple traffic-heavy Internet sites. You can use Memcached with sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other app and decrease the load on your virtual machine, which will allow you to keep using the current VPS hosting plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which proves its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers that we offer and the sole requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on famous Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each dedicated machine comes with a particular amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to optimize the loading speed of extremely large sites greatly, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin caching info the moment it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you will notice the enhanced overall performance of your sites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. Numerous sites use Memcached to boost their efficiency, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
