Memcached is a famous object caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your websites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a customer searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be carried out considerably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for shopping portals, as every time a specific web page is opened, the application sends a database request to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every shared hosting plan that we offer and in case you wish to use it for any script-based site that you host on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to order it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache info, so for a lot of websites (or for one single large-sized site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With Memcached, any script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will open lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached data caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-powered app, you can use it for any Internet site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-built application, etc. You can request the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things indicate the number of the sites that will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your data. The two things are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and the website visitors will swiftly see the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

When you purchase a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the object caching platform is available with all virtual machines that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage content-rich sites, you’ll be able to increase their overall performance without efforts and the decreased load on the server will enable you to continue using your current plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven web application, irrespective of whether you’ve set it up yourself or you are using a ready-made one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with only a few clicks. You can improve the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-driven software application you rely on or how popular the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows immensely with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching information each time someone visits your site, so, once enough info has been cached, you’ll notice the reduced load on your server and the improved overall performance of the site. Memcached is being used by numerous sites, among them famous portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which verifies the effectiveness of the caching system.
