Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites drastically if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if somebody conducts a search for a given product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be completed much quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for shopping portals, as anytime a particular page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Web Hosting

If you host script-powered sites in a web hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your shared hosting package with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the required extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a popular site with a lot of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached data caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-driven app, you can use it for any website that you host on our servers, regardless of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-built application, etc. You can request the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things indicate the number of the websites that will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your content. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can use the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and your website visitors will swiftly see the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is included by default with each virtual private server offered by our company on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to use the full capacity of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for numerous Internet sites, no matter how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading the virtual machine. The Memcached caching system is excellent for script-powered applications such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will start storing information and you will note the optimized overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this object caching system as soon as the dedicated server is ready, without needing to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve chosen, but as our servers are quite powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-hungry websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be three gigabytes. This will allow you to boost the overall performance of extremely popular sites without effort and you will see the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system starts caching database queries. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any database-powered web portal, including those based on widely used CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
