Memcached is a widely used distributed memory caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your websites immensely if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when a user conducts a search for a particular product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be executed noticeably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, as anytime a given page is visited, the app sends a query to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we are offering and you will be able to begin using it the moment you order it, since the PHP extension that it needs so as to function correctly is already available on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every shared hosting package and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the total size of the content that the system can cache. A regularly visited site with a very large database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you wish to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached data caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-powered software application, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom one, etc. You can order the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things indicate how many sites will use Memcached and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your info. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached with any type of site and both you and the visitors will swiftly see the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform through the section with the very same name. The activation requires several clicks of the mouse and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you’ve selected, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-demanding Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other software app and lower the load on your VPS server, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS plan instead of moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which proves its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can boost the performance of any website, irrespective of what script-powered software app you’re using or how popular the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount rises seriously with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching info anytime someone browses your website, so, once sufficient data has been cached, you will detect the decreased load on the dedicated server and the optimized performance of your website. The Memcached system is used by numerous websites, among them famous portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is an evidence of the efficiency of the Memcached system.
