Memcached is a popular distributed memory caching platform, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your websites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when a user conducts a search for a given product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be completed considerably faster. This is valid for all types of database-driven applications and not only for online shops, as anytime a specific web page is opened, the application sends a database request to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably 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 site visitors will not see any old information.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can use Memcached with all web hosting plans that we’re offering. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can order with only a few clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for traffic-heavy websites with large-sized databases and lots of visitors. In this way, you can accelerate the loading speed of every script-based site hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached content caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated plans and since it works with any script-driven application, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our servers, no matter what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom app, etc. You can order the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things indicate how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching system and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your info. The two features are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of system memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any type of website and both you and your website visitors will swiftly see the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you acquire a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the distributed memory caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage frequently visited Internet sites, you can boost their overall performance without any effort and the decreased load on the VPS will allow you to continue using your current plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store information depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can use Memcached with any database-powered app, regardless of whether you have created it on your own or you are using a ready-made one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this caching system once your server is fully operational, without having to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have selected, but as our servers are incredibly powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-demanding sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 GB. This will allow you to accelerate the overall performance of extremely popular Internet sites effortlessly and you will distinguish the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any database-powered online portal, including those that are based on popular CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
