Memcached is a popular content caching system, which can accelerate the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites greatly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a client conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be performed noticeably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a particular web page is accessed, the app sends a request to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

You can take advantage of Memcached with all website hosting that we offer. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first part shows the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for popular websites with large-size databases and numerous visitors. Thus, you can improve the overall performance of every script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-based web application, you can use it for every website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what app you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom-created 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 separate things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things determine how many websites will use the Memcached caching system and how much memory the system will be able to use to cache your info. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any type of website and both you and the website visitors will quickly see the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with each and every VPS server offered by us provided that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the potential of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared web hosting plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for a lot of websites, irrespective of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading the server. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-driven software applications such as WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will start caching content and you’ll spot the optimized performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you buy any of our dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can set it up for each website that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching info as people visit your website, so you will notice the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the caching platform for many Internet sites or for a very heavy site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will allow you to improve the load speed of any database-driven Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to boost the performance of your server.
