Memcached is a widespread distributed memory object caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the performance of your sites tremendously in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a customer conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be completed noticeably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, since anytime a given page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting plans that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can add with only a couple of clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a good idea for heavy-traffic websites with large-sized databases and numerous concurrent visitors. Thus, you can increase the overall performance of any script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the data caching platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much data can be cached, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to increase the speed of any script-driven website, including those based on famous software apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with each VPS server that we are offering provided that you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the full potential of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful plan you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for plenty of sites, regardless of how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading the server. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-driven apps such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you enable the Memcached system, it will start storing information and you will observe the enhanced performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the machine with only several clicks of the mouse. You can optimize the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-driven software application you rely on or how popular the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows considerably with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching content every time someone browses your site, so, as soon as enough data has been cached, you’ll see the lowered load on the dedicated machine and the optimized overall performance of your Internet site. The Memcached system is being used by many sites, among them famous portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which proves the efficiency of the Memcached system.
