Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically in case 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 if a client searches for some product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be completed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for Internet shops, since every time a specific web page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached caching system with all Linux shared website hosting packages offered by us. It is available as an upgrade, which you can add with just a couple of clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first one reveals the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for heavy-traffic websites with very large databases and lots of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can enhance the loading speed of every script-based website hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans that we are offering in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the platform via the section with the very same name. The activation takes a few clicks of the mouse and you’ll distinguish the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can employ to cache data depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-intensive sites. You can use Memcached with websites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other web application and reduce the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which proves its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by us and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on popular apps – for instance, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each dedicated machine is tied to a given amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to optimize the load speed of very popular sites considerably, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will start storing information once it’s activated, so shortly after that, you will note the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load. A lot of sites use the Memcached caching system to increase their efficacy, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
