Memcached is a widespread object caching system, which can boost the speed and the performance of your websites considerably 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 someone conducts a search for some product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be executed notably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for web shops, since every time a particular web page is opened, the application connects to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting package that we’re offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache data, so for multiple websites (or for one single traffic-intensive site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With Memcached, every script-based site hosted on our servers will open amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer and use its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the system memory. These things specify the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your info. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single popular website, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on popular web-based applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and plenty of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with all VPS servers ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires to function correctly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can start using the content caching platform the moment your brand new virtual server is completely operational. The system memory that Memcached can use depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to optimize the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to reduce the load on the virtual machine even if you have traffic-intensive script-based portals with many viewers. The Memcached platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-built one, and you’ll distinguish the faster performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers that we are offering and the only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on widely used applications – for instance, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered community site. Each dedicated machine is tied to a certain amount of memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the load speed of very popular sites greatly, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start caching info as soon as it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you will observe the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the reduced load on your dedicated machine. Lots of Internet sites use Memcached to improve their efficacy, including famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
