Memcached is a famous memory caching system, which can boost the speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when somebody conducts a search for a given product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be performed considerably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for web stores, since every time a web page is accessed, the application connects to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each cloud web hosting plan offered by our company and if you want to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache data, so for a lot of sites (or for one regularly visited site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With Memcached, each script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the sites hosted in the account, you can add it with just a couple of mouse clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is suitable for any script-based web app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a tailor-made app, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you own a popular Internet site with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will accelerate the performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you obtain a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the data caching platform comes with all servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run resource-intensive sites, you’ll be able to increase their performance with ease and the decreased load on your virtual server will enable you to keep using your current plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the package that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can use Memcached with any database-driven application, regardless of whether you’ve written it yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you order any of our Linux dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached content caching platform as standard and you can set it up for each site that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching content as users access your website, so you will detect the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for plenty of websites or for a very heavy website without compromising its efficiency. Memcached will permit you to improve the load speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to improve the overall performance of your server.
