Memcached is a widespread object caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites tremendously if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when someone conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be performed significantly quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for online shopping portals, since every time a specific page is opened, the app sends a query to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably 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 will not see any old information.

Memcached in Hosting

The Memcached data caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each hosting that we offer and you can begin using it once you order it, as the extension that it requires so as to function properly is already present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with every plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic site with a large database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you’d like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any point with a couple of clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated service offered by us and use its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things define how many sites can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to store your information. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-intensive Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widely used apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and plenty of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS servers ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs in order to perform correctly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is configured, so you can start using the distributed memory caching platform the moment your brand new Virtual Private Server is completely ready. The system memory that Memcached 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 exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to improve the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to decrease the load even if you run popular script-powered websites with lots of viewers. Memcached can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom script, and you will detect the better overall performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated service offered by our company and the sole requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on popular Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-powered community web portal. Each dedicated server comes with a given amount of memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the loading speed of extremely popular sites greatly, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will start caching information the moment it is enabled, so soon after that, you’ll notice the improved overall performance of your sites and the decreased server load. Lots of Internet sites use Memcached to boost their efficacy, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
