Memcached is a widely used memory caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your sites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when somebody searches for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be executed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for online stores, since anytime a particular page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system comes as an upgrade with each Linux cloud website hosting service offered by our company and you’ll be able to start using it as soon as you order it, since the extension that it needs so as to function properly is pre-installed on our innovative cloud platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with every plan and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the sites which can use Memcached, while the second, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-heavy Internet site with a large-size database may require more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you would like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any time with a few clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers offered by our company and use its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the memory. These things show how many websites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one busy site, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its type, including those based on widespread software apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and lots of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got resource-heavy websites, you can optimize their overall performance without any effort and the decreased load on your VPS will enable you to keep using your current VPS hosting package instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache content depends on the package that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, irrespective of whether you have set it up yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated servers offered by our company and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on popular web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-powered community portal. Each dedicated machine is tied to a different amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the loading speed of extremely large websites tremendously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin caching information as soon as it’s activated, so soon thereafter, you will notice the improved performance of your sites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. Numerous websites use the Memcached system to improve their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
