Memcached is a widespread memory caching system, which can increase the speed and the performance of your sites substantially 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 returned, so if someone conducts a search for a given 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 considerably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for shopping portals, since every time a given web page is visited, the application sends a database query to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached memory caching system with all web hosting plans offered by us. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can order with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first part defines the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for busy sites with large-sized databases and plenty of visitors. Thus, you can accelerate the performance of every script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the memory. These things indicate how many sites can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to store your data. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not bound to a particular amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single resource-consuming website, for example. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its type, including those based on widely used software apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to enhance the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the data caching platform through the Control Panel section with the very same name. The setup takes several clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can employ to store data depends on the particular VPS package that you have chosen, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several frequently visited websites. You can use Memcached with websites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other software app and reduce the load on your virtual server, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS hosting package instead of moving to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which demonstrates its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of our dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached caching platform as standard and you can use it with each site that you host on your dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching info as users visit your Internet site, so you’ll detect the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for many sites or for a very busy site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to enhance the speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your server.
