Memcached is a widespread memory caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your websites greatly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if someone searches for a particular product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be completed significantly quicker. This goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for Internet shops, as anytime a web page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can use the Memcached data caching system with all web hosting plans that we are offering. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can order with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via 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 as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for high-traffic sites with large-size databases and numerous users. In this way, you can boost the performance of every script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-driven software app, you can use it for any Internet site that you host on our platform, regardless of what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-created application, etc. You can order the upgrade via the respective 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 memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things define how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your content. The two features are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and your website visitors will quickly perceive the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with each VPS server that we offer provided that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the full potential of this caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for multiple sites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading the virtual machine. The caching system is ideal for script-driven web apps such as OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you enable the Memcached system, it will start storing content and you’ll perceive the enhanced performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous applications – for example, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-driven community site. Each server is tied to a given amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate the load speed of extremely popular websites tremendously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start caching content once it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you will notice the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached system to improve their efficacy, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
