Memcached is a popular content caching system, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when a visitor conducts a search for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be executed noticeably faster. This is valid for all types of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, since every time a page is opened, the application sends a database query to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any old information.

Memcached in Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each website hosting account that we are offering and if you would like to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in several easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache info, so for multiple sites (or for one single traffic-intensive site), you’d better order more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, each script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will load unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a couple of clicks. The caching platform is ideal for any script-based software application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-made app, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to choose two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you have a popular website with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will enhance the performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes as standard with all VPS web hosting plans ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs so as to work properly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is set up, so you can begin using the caching platform as soon as your new VPS server is completely ready. The memory that Memcached can use depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the less powerful ones, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to enhance the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the VPS at the same time and to reduce the load on the machine even if you have traffic-hungry script-based portals with lots of visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-developed script, and you will observe the better performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated web hosting plans that we’re offering and the only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on famous software applications – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-driven social networking site. Each dedicated server comes with a certain amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the speed of extremely busy websites significantly, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start caching data as soon as it’s enabled, so shortly after that, you’ll distinguish the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on your dedicated machine. Numerous sites use the Memcached caching system to improve their effectiveness, including famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
