Memcached is a widespread distributed memory object caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your websites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if a client conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be performed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for web shops, since every time a page is opened, the app sends a request to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached caching system with all shared hosting plans that we offer. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can obtain with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for traffic-heavy websites with large databases and many visitors. In this way, you can increase the speed of any script-based website hosted on our servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use Memcached and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your data. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not linked to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one large-sized Internet site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those based on widely used web applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with each VPS server that we’re offering on the condition that you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the potential of this content caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared web hosting package. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for a lot of sites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your virtual machine. The caching system is excellent for script-powered web applications such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will begin storing info and you will notice the optimized performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on widely used Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each dedicated server comes with a different amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the load speed of extremely busy websites substantially, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start caching information once it’s enabled, so shortly after that, you will distinguish the improved performance of your websites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. Lots of sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their efficacy, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
