Memcached is a widely used data caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if someone searches for some product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be completed considerably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for e-shops, as anytime a specific web page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every website hosting account that we offer and if you wish to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache information, so for a lot of sites (or for one single large-scale site), you’d better order more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, each script-driven site hosted on our servers will open faster than the speed of light.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-based app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-built one, etc. You can add the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things determine the number of the sites that will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your info. The two things are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of system memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and the website visitors will quickly notice the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The activation takes a couple of clicks and you will detect the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to cache information depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve chosen, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-demanding Internet sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other software app and decrease the load on your virtual machine, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you order any of our dedicated service and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached object caching platform as standard and you can activate it for each site that you host on your dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching information as users visit your website, so you will notice the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for multiple sites or for a very heavy Internet site without compromising its efficiency. Memcached will enable you to boost the load speed of any database-driven Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
