Memcached is a popular caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your Internet sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when a visitor searches for a specific product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be completed much faster. This goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for online shops, since anytime a given page is visited, the app sends a database query to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each hosting package that we’re offering and if you would like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the memory. The first one refers 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 Internet 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 permitted to use to cache info, so for numerous websites (or for one large-sized site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, every script-based website hosted on our servers will open lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting service offered by us and use its full potential for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things determine how many websites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your info. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-intensive site, for instance. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those based on widely used software applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with every VPS server that we are offering provided that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra cash to be able to use the potential of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for a lot of websites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your VPS server. The caching system is perfect for script-driven web applications like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will begin caching data and you’ll see the improved overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated service that we offer and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on widely used software applications – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated machine is tied to a particular amount of system memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to improve the loading speed of extremely heavy sites tremendously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will begin storing information once it is enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll detect the enhanced performance of your sites and the lowered load on your server. Numerous websites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
