Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching system, which can increase the speed and the performance of your sites tremendously if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a user searches for some product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be performed noticeably quicker. That goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online shopping portals, as anytime a web page is opened, the app sends a database query to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you will be able to add Memcached to your web hosting plan with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the necessary extension is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you run a busy site with a lot of content, you may require more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the distributed memory caching platform’s setup takes several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much content can be cached, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to improve the speed of any script-powered site, including those that are based on widely used web-based applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with each VPS server offered by our company provided that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra money to be able to use the full capacity of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared package. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for a lot of websites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the server. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-powered applications like WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you activate Memcached, it will start caching information and you will see the enhanced performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform as standard and you can activate it for each Internet site that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing information as people visit your website, so you’ll see the effect of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for numerous websites or for a very busy Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will allow you to optimize the speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated server.
