Memcached is a widely used distributed memory object caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the performance of your sites considerably in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if a visitor searches for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be executed notably quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online shops, as anytime a particular web page is visited, the app sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all shared web hosting plans offered by us. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can acquire with just a couple of clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the websites that you wish to use it for. The first one shows the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-demand sites with very large databases and lots of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can boost the performance of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the content caching platform’s activation takes several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much information it will cache, i.e. there are two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we do not tie a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached platform to accelerate any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with each VPS server that we offer if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the full power of this content caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for multiple websites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The Memcached caching system is excellent for script-powered software applications like OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing information and you’ll distinguish the improved performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order form, you will get the Memcached platform as standard and you can use it with each website that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing data as users open your Internet site, so you’ll notice the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the caching platform for a lot of Internet sites or for a very heavy site without compromising its effectiveness. Memcached will permit you to accelerate the load speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart store, etc., and to optimize the overall performance of your server.
