Memcached is a commonly used memory caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites considerably if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when somebody conducts a search for a specific product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be carried out considerably quicker. This is valid for all types of database-powered applications and not only for e-commerce portals, as anytime a web page is accessed, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can make use of Memcached with all shared hosting services offered by our company. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with only a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for frequently visited sites with large databases and plenty of visitors. Thus, you can optimize the overall performance of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the system memory. These things determine how many sites can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to store your content. You can select them separately, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large-sized website, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its type, including those based on widely used web-based apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS services ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires in order to perform correctly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can begin using the object caching platform once your brand new VPS is fully ready. The memory that Memcached can employ depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to enhance the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS server simultaneously and to reduce the load on the virtual machine even if you’ve got popular script-based online portals with many visitors. The platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom script, and you will notice the better overall performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated hosting that we offer and the one and only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on popular web-based apps – for example, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each server is tied to a specific amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the load speed of extremely heavy websites seriously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start storing data the moment it’s activated, so shortly after that, you’ll distinguish the enhanced overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on the dedicated machine. Plenty of websites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
