Memcached is a widespread content caching system, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your websites greatly in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a customer searches for a specific product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be completed noticeably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online shops, as anytime a given page is visited, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each shared website hosting package offered by our company and in case you wish to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache data, so for multiple websites (or for one traffic-heavy site), you’d better get more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With Memcached, any script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will open extra-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the account, you can add it with only a couple of clicks. The caching platform is suitable for any script-driven app like WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made one, and depending on your needs, you’ll be able to select two separate features – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you own a frequently visited website with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will improve the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS

If you obtain a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the data caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own large-size Internet sites, you can enhance their performance effortlessly and the decreased load on your Virtual Private Server will enable you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache information depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you will get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, regardless of whether you have developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-made one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the distributed memory caching system the moment your server is fully functional, without having to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you have picked, but as our servers are extremely powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-heavy websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to increase the overall performance of extremely popular Internet sites without any effort and you will distinguish the difference shortly after the Memcached system starts caching database calls. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven online portal, including those that are based on famous CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
