Memcached is a popular content caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your websites immensely in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when a customer searches for some product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be completed considerably faster. This is valid for all types of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, since every time a given page is opened, the app sends a database query to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with each Linux shared hosting offered by us and you will be able to begin using it once you add it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to work properly is pre-installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each and every shared web hosting package and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, while the second one, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic website with a large-size database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any time with a few clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and use its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use Memcached and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your info. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one traffic-heavy site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widespread Internet applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and many companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we’re offering when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the caching platform via the section with the same name. The activation requires a few clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache info depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve selected, but in any case it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several popular Internet sites. You can use Memcached with sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet app and reduce the load on your VPS, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a confirmation of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you obtain one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will get the Memcached content caching platform by default and you can set it up for each Internet site that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing content as users access your website, so you’ll notice the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for many Internet sites or for a very large site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will enable you to increase the speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
