Memcached is a commonly used content caching system, which can boost the speed and the performance of your Internet sites greatly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when somebody conducts a search for a particular product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be completed notably faster. That goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for online shops, as every time a specific web page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux cloud packages offered by us. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can order with just a couple of clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first one reveals the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for high-traffic websites with large databases and lots of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can optimize the speed of any script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and since it works with any script-powered software application, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom-developed one, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server 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 Internet sites that will use Memcached and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your content. The two things are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a particular amount of system memory. You can make use of Memcached with any sort of website and both you and the site visitors will quickly distinguish the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached comes as standard with all Linux VPS packages that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it requires to function correctly is compiled when the VPS is set up, so you can begin using the distributed memory caching platform as soon as your new VPS server is fully ready. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the particular plan, but even with the less powerful plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to improve the performance of numerous sites hosted on the VPS server simultaneously and to reduce the load even if you have data-rich script-based websites with numerous visitors. The caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom-made script, and you’ll notice the better performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer and the only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those based on famous Internet applications – for example, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-powered community portal. Each server is tied to a given amount of system memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to optimize the loading speed of extremely popular websites enormously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin caching content the moment it’s enabled, so shortly after that, you will observe the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on your server. Lots of websites use Memcached to improve their efficacy, including famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
