Memcached is a famous memory caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your sites tremendously in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if a user conducts a search for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be executed significantly faster. This is valid for all types of database-driven applications and not only for e-commerce portals, as every time a page is accessed, the application connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting plan that we are offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache content, so for numerous sites (or for one single traffic-consuming site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any point. With the Memcached caching system, every script-driven site hosted on our servers will open extra-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the content caching platform’s activation requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is rather flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to improve the loading speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on popular web apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you obtain a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the distributed memory caching platform comes with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have data-loaded sites, you will be able to accelerate their performance with ease and the reduced load on your virtual server will permit you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store info depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered app, irrespective of whether you have built it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one such as WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you acquire one of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached content caching platform as standard and you can activate it for each Internet site that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing content as people visit your site, so you’ll notice the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for numerous websites or for a very heavy website without weakening its efficacy. Memcached will enable you to optimize the speed of any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
