Memcached is a famous memory caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites considerably in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if a user conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be performed notably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for shopping portals, as every time a specific page is visited, the app connects to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users will not see any old information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached caching system with all Linux shared packages that we’re offering. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with just a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part defines the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for frequently visited websites with large-size databases and lots of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can accelerate the overall performance of any script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and use its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the memory. These things specify how many sites can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to cache your data. You can select them independently, since one instance is not linked to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single large Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on popular applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to enhance the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we offer when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the memory caching platform through the section with the same name. The activation takes a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve chosen, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several heavy sites. You can use Memcached with sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other web application and lower the load on your VPS, which will permit you to continue using the current package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which proves its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you order any of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform by default and you can enable it for each site that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching data as users visit your Internet site, so you’ll notice the results of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached 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 permit you to use the platform for a large number of sites or for an extremely popular website without compromising its effectiveness. Memcached will allow you to enhance the load speed of any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated server.
