Memcached is a widespread content caching platform, which can increase the speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when a user searches for a given product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be executed notably quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for e-shops, as every time a particular web page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system is available as an optional upgrade with every Linux cloud hosting package that we’re offering and you can begin using it as soon as you order it, as the PHP extension that it requires in order to perform properly is already installed on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with every hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the websites that can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-heavy Internet site with a large-size database may need more memory to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you need to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any moment with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with only a couple of mouse clicks. The data caching platform is suitable for any script-powered software application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-made one, and depending on your needs, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you have a traffic-consuming website with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will boost the performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is included by default with each virtual private server that we offer as long as you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the full power of this data caching system. The more powerful plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting plan. This will enable you to use Memcached for many websites, regardless of how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading your server. The caching system is perfect for script-driven applications such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will begin caching content and you will note the improved overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you order any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform as standard and you can enable it for each site that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching information as people access your Internet site, so you’ll notice the result of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for plenty of sites or for a very popular site without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will enable you to enhance the speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart store, etc., and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated server.
