Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a user conducts a search for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be executed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for shopping portals, since every time a page is accessed, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

You can take advantage of Memcached with all shared website hosting that we are offering. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with only a few clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large databases and many visitors. In this way, you can boost the performance of every script-powered site hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get Memcached as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-based web app, you can use it for any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom app, etc. You can order the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things determine the number of the sites that will use Memcached and how much system memory the system will be able to use to store your information. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any sort of website and both you and your website visitors will swiftly perceive the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages offered by us when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the content caching platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The setup takes a couple of clicks and you will distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache information depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have chosen, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several resource-intensive sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other software app and reduce the load on your VPS, which will allow you to keep using the current plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which proves its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you buy one of our dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached data caching platform as standard and you can activate it for each site that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing info as people visit your Internet site, so you’ll notice the result of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for plenty of websites or for a very popular website without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to accelerate the loading speed of any database-powered Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your dedicated server.
