Memcached is a widely used object caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if somebody searches for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be performed significantly faster. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for online shops, since every time a given web page is visited, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached caching system to your shared hosting package with just a few clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you need. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you run a popular website with lots of content, you may require more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the distributed memory caching platform’s activation takes several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is pretty flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to accelerate any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous web-based applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

If you buy a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the content caching platform comes with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got large websites, you’ll be able to enhance their overall performance with ease and the lowered server load will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven app, no matter if you have created it yourself or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with just several clicks. You can improve the performance of any site, regardless of what script-driven app you rely on or how popular the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases enormously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching content anytime somebody accesses your site, so, once sufficient data has been cached, you will perceive the decreased load on the dedicated server and the improved overall performance of your website. The Memcached caching system is used by plenty of sites, including famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a confirmation of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
