Memcached is a widespread memory caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a user searches for a given product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be completed noticeably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online shops, as anytime a given page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting account that we offer and in case you wish to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache content, so for lots of websites (or for one single large-sized site), you may want to order more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, every script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will load amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated plans that we’re offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the memory. These things specify the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to store your content. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not linked to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one regularly visited website, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its type, including those based on popular web applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and plenty of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the caching platform is available with all VPS servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage large-sized Internet sites, you can accelerate their overall performance without any effort and the reduced load on your VPS will permit you to keep your current plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store data depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get no less than several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven application, irrespective of whether you’ve developed it yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one like OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering and the only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on widely used software applications – for example, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each dedicated machine is tied to a given amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate extremely popular websites considerably, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will start storing content once it’s activated, so shortly after that, you will distinguish the optimized performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on your dedicated machine. Plenty of sites use the Memcached caching system to improve their effectiveness, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
