Memcached is a famous memory caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if somebody conducts a search for a given product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be completed notably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for e-commerce portals, as every time a particular page is accessed, the app sends a database request to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every shared hosting account that we’re offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use Memcached at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use in order to cache content, so for plenty of sites (or for one traffic-hungry site), you may want to get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will load amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached object caching system as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-driven web application, you can use it for every site that you host on our servers, regardless of what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom application, etc. You can request the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things show the number of the sites that will use Memcached and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to store your info. The two things are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached with any kind of site and both you and your visitors will quickly detect the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you order a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the caching platform is offered with all virtual machines that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run resource-demanding sites, you can enhance their overall performance with no effort and the lowered load on the server will enable you to keep your current VPS package instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can use Memcached with any database-powered web application, irrespective of whether you’ve built it yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one such as WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with just several clicks of the mouse. You can accelerate the overall performance of any site, regardless of what script-based web application you rely on or how heavy the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases tremendously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching info every time someone visits your site, so, as soon as sufficient content has been stored, you will perceive the lowered load on your dedicated server and the improved performance of your site. Memcached is used by numerous sites, including popular portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which confirms the efficiency of the Memcached system.
