Memcached is a widespread caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites substantially in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if a customer searches for a given product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be executed significantly faster. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for web stores, as anytime a particular web page is visited, the application sends a database query to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is offered as an upgrade with each Linux cloud website hosting service offered by our company and you can begin using it once you enable it, as the extension that it requires in order to perform properly is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every web hosting package and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A frequently visited Internet site with a large-sized database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so in case you’d like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any point with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The platform is perfect for any script-driven software application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-built one, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to select two different features – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you own a popular website with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. Memcached will improve the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better load times.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

If you purchase a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the platform is available with all VPSs that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got busy sites, you will be able to boost their performance without effort and the lowered load will allow you to keep your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store content depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get 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 noticeable. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven web app, irrespective of whether you’ve set it up on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you acquire one of our Linux dedicated hosting services and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get Memcached by default and you can activate it for any website that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing data as people access your site, so you’ll see the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for a large number of sites or for an extremely large site without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will enable you to improve the load speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your server.
