Memcached is a widespread memory caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites drastically 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 when somebody searches for a given product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be completed much faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online stores, as anytime a page is visited, the app sends a request to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting account that we’re offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache info, so for a lot of sites (or for one traffic-consuming site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, every script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will open much faster.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached content caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated services and since it works with any script-driven software app, you can use it for any Internet site that you host on our platform, no matter what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom app, etc. You can request the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things indicate the number of the websites that will use Memcached and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your information. The two features are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and the website visitors will swiftly perceive the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans that we are offering when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup takes a few clicks and you will distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store information depends on the given VPS hosting plan that you have selected, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-intensive sites. You can use Memcached with sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet app and lower the load on your VPS server, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a proof of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

If you order one of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform by default and you can set it up for each website that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing content as users visit your 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 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for a lot of sites or for a very large Internet site without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to enhance the loading speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to improve the performance of your dedicated machine.
