Memcached is a famous distributed memory object caching platform, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if a client searches for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be carried out considerably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for Internet shops, as anytime a specific web page is opened, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host script-powered sites in a cloud web hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached caching system to your shared hosting package with just a couple of clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the required extension is already installed on our advanced cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you’ve got a resource-consuming site with lots of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the system memory. These things show how many websites can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your data. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-demanding Internet site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its type, including those based on widespread web-based applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and many companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to optimize the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs to work properly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can start using the distributed memory caching platform as soon as your brand new VPS server is fully operational. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to increase the performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to lower the load on the machine even if you own traffic-heavy script-powered sites with multiple viewers. Memcached can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom one, and you will notice the better performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with only several clicks. You can boost the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-driven application you rely on or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases considerably with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching information anytime somebody opens your website, so, as soon as sufficient info has been stored, you will see the lowered load and the optimized performance of your site. The Memcached system is used by numerous sites, among them popular portals like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which verifies the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
