Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a client searches for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be carried out noticeably faster. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, since anytime a specific page is visited, the app sends a database request to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users will not see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer and in case you want to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache data, so for multiple sites (or for one single popular site), you may want to get more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, every script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will open amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your account, you can enable it with just a few mouse clicks. The memory caching platform is ideal for any script-powered app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom one, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to select two different things – how many sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you have a regularly visited website with lots of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will optimize the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The configuration requires a few clicks and you will see the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to store information depends on the particular VPS hosting package that you have chosen, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several data-loaded Internet sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other web-based app and decrease the load on your virtual machine, which will enable you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which confirms its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the object caching system the moment your server is up and running, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are really powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-heavy sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of very heavy sites without any effort and you’ll notice the difference shortly after the Memcached system starts caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven site, including those based on widely used CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
