Memcached is a commonly used object caching system, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a user searches for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be executed considerably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for e-commerce portals, as every time a particular page is visited, the app sends a database request to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users will not see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your hosting plan with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the necessary PHP extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you run a large site with a lot of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the content caching platform’s activation requires a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much information it will cache, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to increase the loading speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on widely used software apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is included by default with every virtual private server offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the maximum potential of this memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared web hosting plan. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for numerous sites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your server. The caching system is suitable for script-based software apps such as WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will begin caching data and you’ll perceive the optimized overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with just several clicks of the mouse. You can increase the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-based application you’re using or how busy the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount increases immensely with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will start caching information anytime somebody visits your website, so, as soon as sufficient data has been cached, you will perceive the reduced load on the dedicated machine and the improved performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is being used by plenty of websites, including famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which proves the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
