Memcached is a commonly used object caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites considerably in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a client conducts a search for a certain product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be carried out significantly quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, as anytime a specific web page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Web Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system is available as an upgrade with every web hosting that we are offering and you can begin using it as soon as you enable it, since the extension that it requires so as to run properly is already present on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every web hosting package and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the sites which can use Memcached, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A frequently visited site with a large-size database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you need to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given point with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated service offered by our company and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the amount of memory. These things define how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to store your data. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not linked to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one large-size website, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those based on popular software applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to optimize the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The setup requires a few mouse clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost immediately. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache content depends on the given VPS plan that you’ve picked, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-demanding websites. You can use Memcached with sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other web application and decrease the load on your VPS, which will allow you to keep using the current VPS plan rather than moving to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated service that we offer and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on widely used apps – for instance, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-driven social networking site. Each server is tied to a certain amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the loading speed of extremely busy sites considerably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin caching data as soon as it’s activated, so shortly after that, you will distinguish the improved overall performance of your sites and the reduced load on the dedicated server. Many sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their efficacy, including famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
