Memcached is a commonly used data caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your sites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a visitor conducts a search for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be executed noticeably faster. This goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for e-stores, as anytime a page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached content caching system with all cloud web hosting that we offer. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you wish to use it for. The first one reveals the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for busy sites with large-size databases and plenty of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can improve the loading speed of every script-powered site hosted on our servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the object caching platform’s activation requires several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there’re two different upgradable features – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is pretty flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to boost the speed of any script-driven website, including those that are based on widely used software apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with every VPS server that we are offering provided that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the maximum potential of this memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared web hosting plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for numerous websites, no matter how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading your server. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-powered applications such as OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Soon after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will begin storing information and you’ll spot the improved overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated servers that we are offering and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on famous web apps – for example, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-powered community website. Each dedicated server is tied to a specific 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 load speed of very busy websites substantially, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start storing content once it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll notice the optimized performance of your websites and the decreased load. Numerous sites use Memcached to increase their efficiency, among them famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
