Memcached is a widely used content caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your sites substantially in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a client searches for a specific product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be executed considerably faster. This goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, since every time a given page is opened, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each hosting plan that we offer and if you’d like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to order it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache data, so for a lot of websites (or for one single resource-demanding site), you may want to order more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, every script-based website hosted on our servers will load lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the content caching platform’s setup requires a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much data it will cache, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can get 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 really flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to improve the speed of any script-powered site, including those based on famous applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The configuration takes several mouse clicks and you’ll notice the difference in the performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to store information depends on the given VPS package that you’ve chosen, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple traffic-hungry Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other web app and decrease the load on your virtual machine, which will allow you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you purchase one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached caching platform as standard and you can use it with each site that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing content as people access your Internet site, so you will detect the effect of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the platform for multiple sites or for a very large website without weakening its efficacy. Memcached will permit you to improve the speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
