Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites considerably if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a customer searches for a particular product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be completed notably quicker. This goes for all types of database-powered applications and not only for online shopping portals, as anytime a given page is opened, the app sends a database query to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you will be able to add Memcached to your hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it right 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 amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a large website with a lot of data, you may require more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the caching platform’s setup requires several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much content can be cached, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to improve the loading speed of any script-driven website, including those that are based on popular software applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with every VPS server that we offer as long as you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra money to be able to take advantage of the power of this content caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared web hosting package. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for many websites, no matter how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading the VPS. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-based web apps such as OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start caching data and you’ll see the improved performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get Memcached as standard and you can set it up for any website that you host on the dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing information as users open your site, so you will see the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for many sites or for an extremely busy site without weakening its efficiency. Memcached will enable you to accelerate the loading speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to improve the performance of your dedicated machine.
