Memcached is a famous data caching platform, which can improve the speed and the performance of your sites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a visitor conducts a search for a certain product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be executed significantly faster. This goes for all types of database-powered applications and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a specific page is accessed, the application connects to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system is available as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared website hosting package that we are offering and you will be able to start using it once you activate it, as the extension that it requires in order to run correctly is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with every shared hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A regularly visited website with a large-size database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you wish to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain 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 sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks. The memory caching platform is suitable for any script-powered application like WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made application, and based on your demands, you will be able to select two different things – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a regularly visited site with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will increase the overall performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much better load times.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the object caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The setup takes a few mouse clicks and you will see the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost immediately. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve chosen, but in any case it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several resource-intensive Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet application and reduce the load on your VPS server, which will enable you to continue using the current package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which verifies its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the caching system as soon as the server is ready, without having to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are exceptionally powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-hungry websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 GB. This will allow you to improve the performance of very busy Internet sites effortlessly and you’ll notice the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database calls. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any database-driven website, including those based on widely used CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
