Memcached is a widespread caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your Internet sites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when someone conducts a search for a particular 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 carried out noticeably quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a particular web page is visited, the app sends a database request to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Website Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a website hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached data caching system to your shared hosting package with just a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension required for it is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you own a resource-hungry site with a lot of data, you may require more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the data caching platform’s activation requires a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much information it will cache, i.e. there are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we do not bind a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to improve the speed of any script-powered site, including those based on widely used software apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting packages ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires to function correctly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can start using the memory caching platform as soon as your new VPS server is fully ready. The system memory that Memcached can use depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the less powerful ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to increase the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS simultaneously and to decrease the load on the machine even if you run large-sized script-powered web portals with a lot of viewers. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom-built script, and you will notice the faster performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with only a couple of clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any site, irrespective of what script-based software application you rely on or how popular the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases seriously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will start caching information anytime somebody accesses your site, so, as soon as enough information has been stored, you’ll see the reduced load on the server and the enhanced performance of the site. The Memcached system is being used by many websites, among them popular portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies the efficiency of the Memcached system.
