Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching system, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your websites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when somebody conducts a search for some product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be performed much faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, as anytime a page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system comes as an upgrade with each Linux cloud hosting that we are offering and you will be able to begin using it once you enable it, as the extension that it needs in order to perform correctly is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each shared hosting package and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A busy Internet site with a large database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based software app, you can use it for every site that you host on our servers, irrespective of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-created app, etc. You can add the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things specify how many sites will use the Memcached system and how much memory the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two things are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can take full advantage of Memcached with any kind of website and both you and your visitors will swiftly distinguish the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs in order to function correctly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can begin using the data caching platform the moment your brand-new server is fully operational. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the given plan, but even with the less powerful plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will allow you to improve the performance of multiple sites hosted on the Virtual Private Server at the same time and to reduce the load even if you’ve got large-size script-based portals with plenty of visitors. The platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom-built one, and you’ll see the faster performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only a few clicks. You can enhance the performance of any site, regardless of what script-powered app you’re using or how busy the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows enormously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching info anytime somebody accesses your website, so, once sufficient information has been stored, you’ll perceive the lowered load on the dedicated server and the optimized performance of your site. Memcached is used by a lot of sites, among them famous portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a proof of the efficiency of the Memcached system.
