Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when somebody searches for a certain product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be performed considerably faster. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for web stores, as every time a page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-based sites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached memory caching system to your shared web hosting plan with just a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a high-demand site with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the account, you can activate it with just a few mouse clicks. The object caching platform is ideal for any script-based software app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-made app, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to select two different features – how many sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you run a regularly visited site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will improve the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better load times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with all VPS plans that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it requires in order to work properly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching platform as soon as your brand-new VPS is completely ready. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the particular plan, but even with the low-end ones, 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 at the same time and to decrease the load on the machine even if you own large script-based web portals with many viewers. Memcached can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom script, and you’ll see the faster overall performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with just a few clicks. You can boost the performance of any site, regardless of what script-driven application you rely on or how heavy the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount rises significantly with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching data anytime somebody opens your site, so, once enough content has been stored, you will perceive the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the optimized overall performance of your Internet site. The Memcached system is used by numerous sites, including popular portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the Memcached system.
