Memcached is a widely used distributed memory object caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites greatly if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a client searches for a specific product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be executed notably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for e-stores, since every time a specific page is visited, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all shared plans offered by our company. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can obtain with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for busy sites with very large databases and many visitors. Thus, you can boost the loading speed of every script-based Internet site hosted on our servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with only a few mouse clicks. The content caching platform is perfect for any script-driven web application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a tailor-made one, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to select two different things – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a frequently visited site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will enhance the overall performance of your sites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster load times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with each and every VPS server that we offer on the condition that you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra money to be able to take advantage of the full potential of this object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared package. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for many websites, irrespective of how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The caching system is excellent for script-powered applications such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will begin caching data and you’ll perceive the improved overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached content caching platform by default and you can set it up for each site that you host on your dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching info as people visit your website, so you’ll notice the results of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for many websites or for an extremely large Internet site without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to boost the loading speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart store, etc., and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
