Memcached is a famous distributed memory object caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites substantially in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a customer searches for a specific product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be performed notably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online stores, as anytime a given page is opened, the application sends a database request to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Website Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a website hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your hosting package with just a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you need. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a large-sized site with lots of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you order one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the account, you can activate it with just a couple of clicks. The memory caching platform is suitable for any script-based web application like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built one, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a traffic-heavy Internet site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will increase the performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster loading times.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is offered by default with each virtual private server that we offer if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the maximum potential of this memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will enable you to use Memcached for numerous websites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading your server. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-driven apps like WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing data and you’ll note the improved performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated hosting offered by us and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those based on famous software apps – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-powered community website. Each server is tied to a different amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to enhance the load speed of extremely busy sites greatly, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will begin caching content as soon as it’s activated, so soon after that, you’ll distinguish the improved overall performance of your websites and the lowered load on your dedicated machine. Plenty of sites use Memcached to enhance their efficacy, among them popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
