Memcached is a famous object caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when someone searches for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be completed notably quicker. This is valid for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, as anytime a particular page is opened, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your hosting plan with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the PHP extension required for it is already installed on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you’ve got a resource-intensive site with lots of content, you may need more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the platform’s activation requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much info can be cached, i.e. there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is amazingly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to improve the loading speed of any script-powered site, including those based on famous web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is offered by default with each and every virtual private server offered by us on the condition that you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to use the maximum capacity of this content caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared package. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for numerous sites, regardless of how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading your server. The caching system is ideal for script-powered web applications like OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing info and you will observe the improved overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with only several clicks of the mouse. You can increase the overall performance of any site, no matter what script-based web application you’re using or how heavy the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount rises considerably with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching info every time somebody opens your site, so, once enough information has been stored, you will see the lowered load on the dedicated machine and the improved performance of your website. Memcached is used by numerous sites, among them popular portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a proof of the efficiency of the Memcached system.
