Memcached is a famous data caching platform, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your websites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a client conducts a search for some product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be carried out significantly faster. That goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for e-stores, as anytime a page is visited, the app sends a database request to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any old information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each shared website hosting plan offered by us and in case you want to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in several easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache data, so for multiple sites (or for one single resource-requiring site), you may want to order more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will load much faster.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached object caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and since it works with any script-driven app, you can use it for every website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what app you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom-built one, etc. You can order the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things specify the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to store your content. The two features are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and your site visitors will swiftly distinguish the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is offered by default with each and every virtual private server offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the potential of this object caching system. The more powerful package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared web hosting plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for plenty of websites, regardless of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the virtual machine. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-based web applications such as OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will start caching info and you will note the optimized overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

When you get one of our dedicated hosting and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can enable it for each site that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching info as users access your site, so you’ll see the results of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the caching platform for a lot of Internet sites or for a very heavy Internet site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to speed up any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
