Memcached is a widely used distributed memory caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your websites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a client searches for a particular product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be performed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, since every time a page is opened, the application connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every shared web hosting package offered by our company and if you would like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache information, so for numerous sites (or for one single traffic-heavy site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any point. With the Memcached caching system, each script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will open extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the platform’s setup takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much info can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the 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 rather flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to increase the speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those based on popular software apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The setup takes several clicks and you will notice the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store content depends on the particular VPS package that you’ve selected, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple content-rich Internet sites. You can use Memcached with websites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet application and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will enable you to keep using the current plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a proof of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you purchase one of our dedicated web hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get Memcached as standard and you can enable it for each site that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching information as users open your site, so you will detect the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system 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 enable you to use the caching platform for a lot of websites or for a very popular site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will permit you to accelerate any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to optimize the performance of your dedicated server.
