Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a customer conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be carried out noticeably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for Internet shops, since anytime a specific web page is opened, the app sends a database request to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached content caching system is offered as an upgrade with each Linux shared hosting service offered by our company and you’ll be able to start using it as soon as you add it, as the PHP extension that it needs in order to run properly is pre-installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each and every shared web hosting plan and a new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that 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 heavy-traffic Internet site with a large-size database may require more memory to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you need to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can add it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The content caching platform is perfect for any script-driven application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-built app, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a traffic-intensive site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will increase the performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much faster loading times.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is available by default with all VPS web hosting ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires in order to perform properly is compiled when the virtual server is configured, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching platform as soon as your new VPS server is completely ready. The system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the given plan, but even with the low-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to boost the overall performance of numerous websites hosted on the virtual server simultaneously and to lower the load on the machine even if you own traffic-hungry script-driven web pages with numerous visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom-developed script, and you’ll see the better overall performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just a few clicks. You can accelerate the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-driven software app you are using or how large the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows tremendously with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching information each time somebody browses your site, so, as soon as sufficient information has been stored, you’ll detect the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the optimized overall performance of your Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by plenty of sites, including famous portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which proves the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
