Memcached is a popular content caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your websites greatly if 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 if a client searches for some product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be carried out notably faster. That goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a specific web page is accessed, the application sends a database query to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open 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 If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is available as an upgrade with each and every cloud plan that we’re offering and you will be able to begin using it the moment you activate it, since the extension that it needs so as to work correctly is already available on our innovative cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every hosting package and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-heavy site with a large database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given time with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. The object caching platform is ideal for any script-driven web application like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed one, and based on your necessities, you will be able to select two different features – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a busy site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the distributed memory object caching platform is available with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own data-loaded Internet sites, you will be able to increase their overall performance with no effort and the lowered load on your VPS will enable you to continue using your current VPS hosting plan rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache information depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven web application, regardless of whether you’ve set it up on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by us and the only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on widely used web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each dedicated machine comes with a particular amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to speed up extremely popular sites seriously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will begin caching info the moment it is enabled, so soon thereafter, you’ll see the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on the server. Plenty of Internet sites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficiency, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
