Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if someone searches for a specific product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be completed much quicker. That goes for all types of database-powered applications and not only for online stores, as every time a specific web page is opened, the application sends a request to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use the Memcached caching system with all cloud web hosting packages offered by us. It is available as an upgrade, which you can activate with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first part defines the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for traffic-heavy sites with large databases and lots of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can optimize the overall performance of any script-powered website hosted on our servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the object caching platform’s activation takes a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much content can be cached, in other words – there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we do not bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to speed up any script-driven site, including those based on famous apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting packages ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires in order to function correctly is compiled when the VPS server is configured, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching platform once your brand new VPS is completely operational. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the particular plan, but even with the less powerful plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will allow you to optimize the performance of numerous websites hosted on the server simultaneously and to lower the load even if you have large script-powered web pages with multiple visitors. The platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom one, and you’ll see the better performance shortly after you start using it.

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 begin using this memory caching system the moment your server is fully ready, without having to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are quite powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-requiring sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to optimize the overall performance of very busy Internet sites with ease and you will notice the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database queries. You can make full use of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven website, including those based on widely used CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
