Memcached is a widely used content caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when someone conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be carried out significantly quicker. This is valid for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-commerce portals, since every time a particular web page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a shared web hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached content caching system to your plan with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the necessary extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you wish. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you manage a larger site with a lot of content, you may require more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached object caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages and since it works with any script-powered application, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what app you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-built app, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things indicate the number of the sites that will use Memcached and how much memory the system will be able to use to store your data. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of system memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any kind of website and both you and the visitors will quickly note the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The activation takes several clicks of the mouse and you’ll see the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ to cache info depends on the given VPS plan that you’ve picked, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple content-loaded Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet app and lower the load on your VPS server, which will enable you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of moving to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which shows its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers hosting offered by us and the only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used software applications – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-powered community website. Each server is tied to a certain amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the load speed of very popular websites noticeably, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start storing data the moment it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you’ll observe the optimized performance of your websites and the decreased load on your server. Numerous sites use Memcached to increase their efficacy, among them popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
