Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites considerably if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if somebody conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be executed significantly faster. That goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a web page is visited, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-based sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached object caching system to your web hosting plan with just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the extension needed 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 memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you need. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a busy site with lots of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The platform is perfect for any script-powered application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made application, and based on your needs, you will be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you own a traffic-consuming site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will boost the performance of your sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages that we’re offering when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The setup requires several clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to cache content depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you have chosen, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several busy websites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other application and decrease the load on your virtual server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which shows its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the memory caching system as soon as your server is up and running, without having to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve selected, but since our servers are quite powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-consuming Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to accelerate the performance of very heavy Internet sites without any effort and you will notice the difference shortly after the Memcached system starts caching database queries. You can make the most of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven web page, including those that are based on famous CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
