Memcached is a popular content caching platform, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a client searches for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be performed much quicker. That goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for Internet shops, as every time a page is visited, the application connects to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open much 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any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

The Memcached content caching system is available as an upgrade with every cloud website hosting offered by our company and you’ll be able to begin using it as soon as you enable it, as the PHP extension that it needs in order to run correctly is already available on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every hosting plan and a new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use Memcached, while the second, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive Internet site with a very large database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so in case you want to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any point with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer and use its full potential for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the memory. These things specify how many sites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one traffic-hungry Internet site, for instance. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those based on widely used Internet apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to optimize the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you get a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the platform is available with all VPSs that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have heavy sites, you’ll be able to increase their overall performance effortlessly and the decreased load on the virtual server will permit you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache info depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered web app, irrespective of whether you’ve built it on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with just several mouse clicks. You can improve the performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-based software app you rely on or how large the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows seriously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will begin caching data anytime someone browses your website, so, as soon as sufficient data has been cached, you will notice the decreased load on your dedicated server and the improved overall performance of your Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by numerous sites, including famous portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms the efficiency of the Memcached system.
