Memcached is a popular memory caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a client searches for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be carried out noticeably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a given web page is visited, the application sends a database query to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system is available as an upgrade with every website hosting that we’re offering and you’ll be able to begin using it as soon as you enable it, as the PHP extension that it needs so as to function correctly is already available on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with each and every hosting package and a new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which is available in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A frequently visited website with a very large database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you want to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any point with a couple of mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the memory caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to improve the speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup takes several clicks and you will notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that Memcached can take advantage of to store data depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you have chosen, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several intense-traffic sites. You can use Memcached with sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet app and lower the load on your virtual server, which will permit you to continue using the current package instead of moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by us in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with just a few mouse clicks. You can improve the performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-based software app you’re using or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows immensely with the higher-end servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching info each time somebody opens your site, so, as soon as sufficient data has been cached, you will perceive the decreased load on your server and the optimized performance of the website. Memcached is used by numerous websites, among them famous portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
