Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching platform, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when somebody conducts a search for a given product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be executed significantly quicker. This goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for web shops, since anytime a particular page is visited, the app connects to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each web hosting plan that we’re offering and if you want to use it for any script-based website that you host on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache data, so for multiple websites (or for one resource-intensive site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, each script-powered website hosted on our servers will open extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and make use of its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things indicate the number of the sites that can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to cache your info. You can select them separately, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one popular Internet site, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its type, including those based on widespread web applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached comes as standard with all Linux VPS that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires in order to perform correctly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can start using the memory caching platform once your brand new Virtual Private Server is fully operational. The memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the low-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS server simultaneously and to decrease the load even if you’ve got frequently visited script-based web portals with multiple viewers. The caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-made one, and you’ll observe the better performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-driven web application you rely on or how busy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount rises substantially with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will begin caching info every time someone accesses your website, so, as soon as sufficient info has been stored, you’ll perceive the lowered load on your dedicated server and the improved performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is being used by numerous websites, among them popular portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is an evidence of the effectiveness of the caching system.
