Memcached is a widely used content caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites greatly in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when someone searches for some product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be performed much faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online shops, as every time a particular web page is opened, the application sends a database request to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux web hosting packages that we’re offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can add with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for frequently visited websites with large-size databases and lots of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the loading speed of any script-driven website hosted on our servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the amount of memory. These things determine how many websites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your information. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not bound to a particular amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single large-size website, for example. 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 site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular Internet apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to enhance the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we are offering when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the platform through the section with the same name. The setup takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and you’ll notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to cache data depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you have selected, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several resource-demanding Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet app and reduce the load on your VPS server, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than 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 Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is an evidence of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this data caching system as soon as your dedicated server is completely ready, without having to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are incredibly powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-consuming websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be three gigabytes. This will permit you to increase the performance of very popular Internet sites effortlessly and you’ll note the difference soon after the Memcached caching system starts caching database queries. You can make the most of the caching system with any database-powered web portal, including those based on popular CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
