Memcached is a famous distributed memory object caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your sites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when somebody searches for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be executed much faster. This goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online shops, as every time a web page is opened, the application sends a database request to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Web Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a web hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached data caching system to your hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you wish. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you run a resource-demanding site with lots of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you order any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory object caching platform is perfect for any script-driven application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-made app, and based on your necessities, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you have a frequently visited website with lots of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will enhance the performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the platform through the Control Panel section with the very same name. The setup takes several clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache data depends on the particular VPS package that you’ve selected, but in any case it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple traffic-heavy websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other script and reduce the load on your server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which verifies its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated web hosting that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on popular applications – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each server is tied to a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to increase the speed of very busy sites enormously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin caching information the moment it’s activated, so soon thereafter, you will note the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load. Plenty of sites use Memcached to boost their efficacy, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
