Memcached is a famous distributed memory object caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites substantially if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a user conducts a search for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be completed notably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for e-stores, as every time a specific web page is visited, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached content caching system with all shared hosting offered by us. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can get with just a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first part determines the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for traffic-intensive websites with large-sized databases and many simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the overall performance of every script-based Internet site hosted on our servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated packages that we’re offering and make use of its full potential for any script-powered site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the system memory. These things specify the number of the websites that can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your info. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one frequently visited site, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widespread Internet apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and many companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to enhance the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans that we offer if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The setup takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and you’ll notice the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to cache information depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have chosen, but in any case it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several frequently visited sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other web app and reduce the load on your virtual server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of switching to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a proof of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you order one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get Memcached by default and you can set it up for each website that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching data as people access your Internet site, so you will notice the result of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for a large number of websites or for a very busy Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to increase the speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
