Memcached is a commonly used object caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your sites tremendously in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when a client searches for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be carried out considerably quicker. That goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for web shops, since anytime a specific page is accessed, the app connects to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a cloud web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared web hosting plan with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the PHP extension needed for it is already installed on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a frequently visited website with lots of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the distributed memory caching platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much information it will cache, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to boost the loading speed of any script-driven site, including those based on popular Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you purchase a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the caching platform comes with all VPSs that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own large-size sites, you’ll be able to accelerate their overall performance with no effort and the decreased load on the virtual machine will permit you to keep using your current VPS package instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache information depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be great. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web application, regardless of whether you’ve written it on your own or you are using a ready-made one such as WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on famous Internet applications – for example, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated machine is tied to a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate the loading speed of extremely busy websites tremendously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin storing information once it’s activated, so shortly after that, you’ll detect the optimized performance of your websites and the lowered load on the dedicated machine. Lots of websites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficiency, among them famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
