Memcached is a popular distributed memory caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites immensely in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a customer searches for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be executed much quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for online shops, as anytime a web page is opened, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required PHP extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you wish. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a large-size website with lots of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the account, you can enable it with only a few clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is ideal for any script-driven software app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made application, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to select two separate things – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you run a traffic-consuming Internet site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. Memcached will improve the overall performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS

When you obtain a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the memory caching platform comes with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got regularly visited Internet sites, you can enhance their overall performance without effort and the decreased load on your VPS will allow you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll get no less than several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven app, regardless of whether you’ve developed it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used Internet applications – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-powered community site. Each server comes with a certain amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to boost the loading speed of extremely large websites significantly, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will start storing content as soon as it’s enabled, so shortly after that, you’ll distinguish the optimized performance of your Internet sites and the reduced server load. Plenty of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to increase their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
