Memcached is a widely used content caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites immensely 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 returned, so when a visitor conducts a search for a specific product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be carried out significantly quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, since every time a particular web page is opened, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer and in case you want to use it for any script-based site that you host on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in several simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use in order to cache content, so for plenty of sites (or for one single traffic-heavy site), you’d better order more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, any script-powered website hosted on our servers will load amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get Memcached as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based web app, you can use it for every site that you host on our platform, no matter what app you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-developed one, etc. You can add the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two different things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things define the number of the sites that will use the Memcached system and how much memory the system will be able to use to store your information. The two features are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any type of website and both you and the visitors will swiftly note the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages that we are offering when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The activation requires a couple of clicks of the mouse and you’ll distinguish the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ to store content depends on the particular VPS plan that you’ve chosen, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-requiring Internet sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other software app and decrease the load on your VPS, which will allow you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a proof of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated hosting services that we are offering and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used web-based apps – for example, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-powered community site. Each dedicated server comes with a different amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to boost the speed of extremely heavy websites significantly, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will begin storing info once it is activated, so soon thereafter, you will distinguish the improved performance of your sites and the lowered load on your server. Many sites use the Memcached caching system to improve their efficacy, among them popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
