Memcached is a widespread distributed memory object caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when someone conducts a search for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be executed notably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for web stores, as every time a particular web page is opened, the application sends a database request to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting offered by us and you’ll be able to begin using it the moment you enable it, as the extension that it needs in order to work correctly is already installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each and every hosting package and a new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, while the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-heavy site with a large database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you would like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any point with a couple of clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and use its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things show how many websites can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-intensive website, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widespread Internet applications like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with every virtual private server that we offer on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra money to be able to use the full capacity of this memory caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared plan. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for many sites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading the VPS server. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-based software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you activate the Memcached system, it will begin storing content and you will notice the enhanced overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform by default and you can use it with any site that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing content as people open your site, so you will notice the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for numerous sites or for an extremely popular site without weakening its efficiency. Memcached will permit you to boost the speed of any database-powered Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
