Memcached is a famous memory caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a customer searches for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be executed notably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a page is visited, the app sends a request to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system is offered as an upgrade with each and every Linux shared hosting package offered by us and you will be able to begin using it as soon as you add it, as the extension that it needs so as to function correctly is already installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every plan and a brand new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the websites that can use Memcached, while the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A busy website with a large-size database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you want to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any point with a couple of mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the data caching platform’s activation requires a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much info it will cache, in other words – there are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to boost the loading speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on popular web apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS hosting packages ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it needs in order to work correctly is compiled when the VPS is set up, so you can start using the memory caching platform as soon as your brand-new virtual server is fully functional. The system memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the less powerful ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to optimize the performance of multiple websites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to lower the load on the machine even if you run data-rich script-driven online portals with multiple visitors. The platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-built script, and you’ll notice the faster performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just a few mouse clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-powered app you are using or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount increases considerably with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching data anytime somebody browses your website, so, once enough data has been cached, you will detect the lowered load on your server and the improved performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is used by plenty of sites, including famous portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which confirms the efficiency of the caching system.
