Memcached is a commonly used data caching system, which can improve the speed and the performance of your sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a client conducts a search for a certain product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be carried out considerably quicker. This goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for online shops, since anytime a web page is opened, the application connects to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached data caching system with all shared hosting that we are offering. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first part defines the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for high-demand websites with large-sized databases and plenty of users. In this way, you can supercharge the overall performance of every script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much info it will cache, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to improve the loading speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on widely used web apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform through the Control Panel section with the very same name. The setup requires several mouse clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can employ to cache information depends on the given VPS hosting plan that you have chosen, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-heavy sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other script and lower the load on your VPS server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of switching to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a proof of its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you acquire any of our Linux dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached platform as standard and you can use it with any Internet site that you host on the dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing information as users open your website, so you’ll detect the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for multiple websites or for an extremely busy site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to improve the load speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to optimize the performance of your dedicated machine.
