Memcached is a famous object caching system, which can accelerate the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a user searches for some product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be completed noticeably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for web stores, since every time a particular page is accessed, the application sends a database query to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting package that we offer and in case you’d like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache data, so for numerous sites (or for one traffic-consuming site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load incredibly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached data caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and since it works with any script-based app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our platform, no matter what app you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-built application, etc. You can add the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things specify the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system and how much system memory the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two features are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached with any sort of site and both you and the website visitors will quickly note the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages that we offer when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform via the section with the exact same name. The configuration takes a few mouse clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your sites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to store information depends on the given Virtual Private Server package that you’ve picked, but in any case it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several high-demand websites. You can use Memcached with sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other application and decrease the load on your VPS server, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which confirms its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the content caching system the moment the server is up and running, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are unbelievably powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-demanding sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will allow you to accelerate the overall performance of extremely large websites with no effort and you’ll see the difference soon after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can take advantage of the caching system with any database-driven website, including those that are based on famous CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
