Memcached is a widespread caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a client searches for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be carried out considerably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online shops, as anytime a specific page is opened, the app sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system is offered as an upgrade with every Linux shared website hosting that we offer and you’ll be able to start using it once you enable it, as the extension that it requires so as to perform properly is already present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every shared hosting package and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, indicates the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A frequently visited website with a large-size database may require more memory to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you want to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any moment with several clicks.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the memory caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The activation takes a few clicks of the mouse and you will detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting package that you’ve selected, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several resource-requiring sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based app and reduce the load on your server, which will permit you to continue using the current VPS plan rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which proves its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this memory caching system the moment the server is completely operational, without having to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you have chosen, but as our servers are exceptionally powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-heavy Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of extremely popular Internet sites without effort and you’ll distinguish the difference shortly after Memcached begins caching database requests. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered website, including those based on widely used CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
