Memcached is a famous caching system, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your sites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a user searches for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be completed notably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a particular web page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your web hosting plan with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you want. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you’ve got a large site with lots of data, you may need more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the content caching platform’s setup requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to boost the speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on popular software apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available as standard with all VPS servers that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs so as to perform properly is compiled when the VPS server is configured, so you can begin using the data caching platform the moment your brand new VPS is up and running. The system memory that Memcached can use depends on the particular plan, but even with the lower-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to improve the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to lower the load on the virtual machine even if you manage resource-intensive script-driven web pages with a lot of users. The platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-developed one, and you’ll distinguish the better performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with only several clicks. You can accelerate the performance of any site, irrespective of what script-powered web application you rely on or how popular the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows substantially with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching information every time someone visits your site, so, once enough info has been stored, you will distinguish the reduced load and the enhanced performance of your site. The Memcached caching system is being used by a lot of websites, including famous portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which verifies the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
