Memcached is a famous caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites greatly in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a user searches for a specific product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be completed much faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for online shopping portals, as every time a 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 site load much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting package that we are offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache content, so for numerous websites (or for one traffic-heavy site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will load blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and use its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the system memory. These things specify how many sites can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to store your information. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one traffic-hungry website, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those based on popular software applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the object caching platform via the section with the very same name. The activation requires a few clicks and you’ll see the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache info depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have picked, but in any case it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several regularly visited websites. You can use Memcached with websites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other web application and decrease the load on your VPS server, which will allow you to keep using the current plan instead of switching 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 a proof of its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the object caching system once your dedicated server is configured, without needing to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you have chosen, but since our servers are pretty powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-requiring websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to boost the overall performance of very heavy sites without effort and you’ll note the difference soon after Memcached starts caching database requests. You can take advantage of the system with any database-powered portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems such as WordPress and Joomla.
