Memcached is a famous data caching platform, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if a client searches for some product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be performed significantly quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for e-stores, since every time a specific web page is visited, the app sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also generate 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 old 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 would like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in several easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use Memcached at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache info, so for many websites (or for one single traffic-heavy site), you may want to get more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, each script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will open extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with just a few mouse clicks. The content caching platform is suitable for any script-powered web application like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom app, and depending on your needs, you will be able to select two separate things – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a high-demand website with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will optimize the overall performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much better load speeds.

Memcached in VPS

When you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the content caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run busy sites, you will be able to increase their performance without effort and the lowered load on the server will allow you to keep using your current package rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store content depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have no less than several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven web application, regardless of whether you have created it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can optimize the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-driven application you are using or how busy the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases substantially with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will start caching information every time somebody accesses your site, so, as soon as enough information has been stored, you’ll distinguish the lowered load on your dedicated server and the enhanced performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by a lot of websites, including famous portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
