Memcached is a commonly used content caching system, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your Internet sites substantially if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when a user conducts a search for a specific product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be completed considerably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for web stores, as every time a web page is accessed, the app sends a database request to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every shared hosting package that we are offering and in case you wish to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache info, so for plenty of websites (or for one large-size site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, any script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open incredibly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and use its full potential for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things specify how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your content. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single frequently visited website, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widespread web applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS

If you get a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the memory caching platform is available with all virtual machines that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run large-scale sites, you’ll be able to improve their performance without efforts and the decreased load on your server will allow you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be great. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven web app, regardless of whether you have created it yourself or you are using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached platform as standard and you can set it up for any website that you host on your dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching content as users visit your Internet site, so you will see the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for multiple Internet sites or for a very large site without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to improve the load speed of any database-driven Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your server.
