Memcached is a famous memory caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a client conducts a search for a specific product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be completed noticeably faster. That goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for Internet shops, as anytime a page is visited, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we are offering and if you would like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in several easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll 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 sites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache content, so for lots of sites (or for one large site), you’d better order more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven site hosted on our servers will open incredibly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans offered by us and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your info. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single popular website, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on popular web apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and lots of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages offered by our company when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the caching platform through the section with the same name. The setup takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to store content depends on the given VPS hosting plan that you have selected, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple content-rich Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other application and decrease the load on your VPS, which will permit you to continue using the current VPS hosting package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which proves its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes for free with all dedicated servers offered by our company and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on widely used web apps – for instance, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each server is tied to a particular amount of memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the load speed of very large sites greatly, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin storing info the moment it is enabled, so soon thereafter, you will see the improved performance of your websites and the decreased server load. Lots of websites use the Memcached system to enhance their effectiveness, among them popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
