Memcached is a popular data caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your websites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if somebody searches for a certain product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be carried out significantly quicker. This is valid for all types of database-powered applications and not only for online shopping portals, since every time a particular page is accessed, the app sends a database query to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every hosting plan that we’re offering and in case you want to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache info, so for a lot of websites (or for one single traffic-heavy site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, each script-driven website hosted on our servers will open much faster.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add Memcached to any of the semi-dedicated servers offered by us and use its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the system memory. These things indicate how many websites can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to cache your data. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single large-size website, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its type, including those based on popular Internet apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and lots of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available by default with all VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires to work properly is compiled when the VPS is set up, so you can start using the caching platform once your brand new Virtual Private Server is ready. The memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to enhance the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the Virtual Private Server at the same time and to decrease the load on the machine even if you manage large-scale script-powered web portals with many visitors. The caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-developed script, and you’ll see the faster overall performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with just several clicks. You can improve the performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-driven software app you are using or how popular the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount grows enormously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching data every time somebody accesses your website, so, once enough information has been cached, you’ll see the lowered load on your dedicated machine and the enhanced performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by a lot of websites, among them famous portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
