Memcached is a commonly used object caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a customer searches for some product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be performed notably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for web stores, as anytime a specific page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux website hosting that we offer. It is available as an upgrade, which you can acquire with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you order 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 part indicates the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for heavy-traffic websites with large-sized databases and plenty of users. In this way, you can accelerate the speed of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade 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 account, you can add it with just a few mouse clicks. The object caching platform is ideal for any script-based application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made app, and depending on your demands, you will be able to select two different things – how many sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you manage a regularly visited Internet site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. Memcached will optimize the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster loading times.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is available by default with all VPS hosting packages ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires to perform correctly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can begin using the object caching platform as soon as your brand new virtual server is completely functional. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the low-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to boost the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to lower the load on the virtual machine even if you run content-rich script-powered portals with numerous visitors. The caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-made script, and you will observe the better overall performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you purchase any of our dedicated servers hosting packages and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached object caching platform as standard and you can use it with any Internet site that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching data as users open your website, so you will notice the effect of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the caching platform for lots of Internet sites or for a very heavy Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will enable you to improve the loading speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to optimize the performance of your server.
