Memcached is a commonly used object caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your sites significantly in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if someone searches for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be executed notably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for e-stores, as every time a particular web page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.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 can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your hosting package with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary PHP extension is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight 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 system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you wish. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you own a heavy-traffic site with lots of data, you may require more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached object caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-driven app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-developed one, etc. You can order the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things define how many sites will use the Memcached caching system and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache your data. The two things are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any sort of site and both you and your visitors will quickly see the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS hosting ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it needs so as to work correctly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can start using the distributed memory caching platform as soon as your brand new VPS is completely functional. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the low-end ones, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to accelerate the performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS at the same time and to reduce the load on the machine even if you have high-demand script-driven web pages with many viewers. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom-developed script, and you’ll see the better overall performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with only a few clicks of the mouse. You can accelerate the overall performance of any site, regardless of what script-based web app you are using or how busy the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases tremendously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching data each time somebody browses your site, so, as soon as enough information has been stored, you’ll notice the lowered load on the server and the improved performance of the website. The Memcached caching system is used by many sites, including popular portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
