Memcached is a widespread distributed memory object caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if a customer conducts a search for a particular product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be completed significantly quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for online shops, as every time a given web page is accessed, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached caching system is available as an optional upgrade with each cloud web hosting offered by us and you will be able to start using it the moment you enable it, since the PHP extension that it requires so as to perform properly is already available on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every hosting plan and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A busy website with a large-size database may require more memory to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you’d like to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any given moment with a few clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached data caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-based software app, you can use it for every website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-created application, etc. You can order the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things show how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching system and how much memory the system will be able to use in order to store your info. The two things are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and your site visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the content caching platform through the Control Panel section with the very same name. The setup requires a few clicks of the mouse and you’ll see the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ to cache information depends on the given Virtual Private Server package that you have picked, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple traffic-hungry Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other web application and lower the load on your VPS server, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS package instead of migrating to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by us if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with only several mouse clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-driven application you’re using or how popular the site is, since 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. Soon after the system is enabled, it will begin caching data anytime somebody opens your site, so, as soon as sufficient info has been stored, you’ll notice the decreased load on your dedicated machine and the improved overall performance of your website. The Memcached system is used by many websites, including popular portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
