Memcached is a widely used data caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when a client searches for a given product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be completed much quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, as anytime a given web page is visited, the application connects to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

If you host script-based sites in a shared hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared web hosting plan with just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the required extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you’ve got a regularly visited site with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with just a couple of clicks. The data caching platform is perfect for any script-driven software app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made app, and based on your needs, you will be able to choose two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you manage a busy site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. Memcached will optimize the performance of your sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS web hosting plans ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires to function properly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can begin using the distributed memory caching platform the moment your brand new virtual server is completely functional. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to increase the performance of numerous sites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to lower the load even if you own frequently visited script-powered web pages with numerous visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-built script, and you will distinguish the better overall performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you purchase any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order form, you will get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform by default and you can enable it for any website that you host on the dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching info as people visit your site, so you will notice the result of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for a lot of websites or for an extremely popular site without weakening its efficacy. Memcached will allow you to boost the load speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated server.
