Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites immensely in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a client conducts a search for some product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be completed notably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for Internet shops, since anytime a particular web page is opened, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each cloud hosting package that we offer and in case you wish to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache content, so for numerous websites (or for one traffic-heavy site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will open lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade 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 account, you can activate it with only a few clicks of the mouse. The memory caching platform is perfect for any script-powered app like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom application, and depending on your demands, you will be able to select two separate things – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a popular Internet site with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will increase the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better load times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the distributed memory object caching platform comes with all VPSs ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage large-scale websites, you can improve their performance without any effort and the reduced server load will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache information depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered app, no matter if you’ve written it on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with just a couple of clicks. You can improve the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-powered app you are using or how large the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount increases immensely with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching data anytime someone visits your website, so, once sufficient content has been stored, you’ll detect the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of your website. The Memcached caching system is being used by a lot of websites, among them popular portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
