Memcached is a commonly used memory caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a visitor conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be carried out significantly faster. This is valid for all types of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, as anytime a page is accessed, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every shared website hosting plan that we are offering and in case you want to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to activate it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache content, so for many sites (or for one resource-requiring site), you’d better order more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will load extra-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in the account, you can enable it with only a few clicks. The content caching platform is ideal for any script-driven application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed application, and based on your needs, you will be able to choose two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you own a traffic-heavy website with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will improve the performance of your sites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better load times.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The activation takes a few mouse clicks and you will see the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that Memcached can take advantage of to store info depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve picked, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several large-size Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet application and reduce the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a proof of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you get one of our dedicated servers hosting packages and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can use it with any Internet site that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing info as users access your site, so you’ll detect the effect of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for multiple sites or for an extremely large Internet site without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will enable you to improve the speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to optimize the performance of your dedicated server.
