Memcached is a famous distributed memory object caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your sites substantially in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a customer searches for some product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be executed considerably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for web shops, since anytime a page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use the Memcached data caching system with all cloud web hosting that we offer. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can order with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part determines the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – 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 added, the more data will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for frequently visited sites with large databases and a lot of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can accelerate the loading speed of every script-based site hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the content caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much content can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can employ Memcached to increase the loading speed of any script-powered site, including those that are based on famous applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with each and every VPS server that we offer provided that you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra money to be able to use the power of this memory caching system. The more powerful package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for a lot of websites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the virtual machine. The caching system is suitable for script-powered apps such as Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Soon after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will begin caching info and you will note the enhanced overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached object caching platform as standard and you can set it up for any site that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing content as users open your site, so you will see the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for many websites or for a very heavy Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. Memcached will allow you to optimize the loading speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your server.
