Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a user conducts a search for a certain product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be completed noticeably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, since anytime a web page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to get the data 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 edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your hosting package with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the needed PHP extension is already installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you own a resource-consuming site with lots of content, you may require more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you get one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with only a couple of mouse clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is suitable for any script-powered web application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-built app, and based on your requirements, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you run a traffic-consuming Internet site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will boost the overall performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better load speeds.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the object caching platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup takes a couple of mouse clicks and you will detect the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to cache info depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve selected, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several regularly visited websites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other script and lower the load on your server, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS hosting plan instead of switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a proof of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

If you get any of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached content caching platform by default and you can set it up for each site that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start caching content as users open your site, so you will notice the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for lots of sites or for a very heavy website without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to boost the load speed of any database-powered Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to enhance the performance of your server.
