Memcached is a widespread distributed memory object caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites greatly in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if someone conducts a search for some product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be carried out considerably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, as every time a specific web page is accessed, the app sends a query 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 load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

When you host script-powered sites in a website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add Memcached to your shared hosting plan with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the needed PHP extension is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a resource-demanding site with lots of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the distributed memory caching platform’s setup requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much data can be cached, in other words – there are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to improve the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used Internet apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached comes as standard with all Linux VPS that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs in order to work properly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can begin using the data caching platform the moment your new virtual server is ready. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the given plan, but even with the lower-end ones, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to accelerate the overall performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS simultaneously and to lower the load on the machine even if you run resource-demanding script-based online portals with lots of visitors. The caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom script, and you’ll observe the faster overall performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated hosting that we offer and the one and only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on popular software apps – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each server is tied to a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to boost the load speed of extremely large websites immensely, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin caching info as soon as it is enabled, so soon after that, you will note the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the lowered load on the dedicated server. A lot of Internet sites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficacy, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
