Memcached is a widely used content caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your websites considerably in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a user conducts a search for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be executed much quicker. This goes for all types of database-powered applications and not only for web stores, since anytime a page is opened, the app sends a database query to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Web Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a web hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your web hosting plan with only a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the needed extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, 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 available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a heavy-traffic site with a lot of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things specify how many sites can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one traffic-hungry Internet site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widespread web apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and plenty of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you acquire a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the data caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have resource-heavy Internet sites, you will be able to increase their overall performance with no effort and the decreased load on the VPS server will permit you to keep your current Virtual Private Server package rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, regardless of whether you’ve written it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you get any of our dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform as standard and you can use it with any website that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing info as users visit your website, so you’ll notice the effect of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for plenty of sites or for an extremely busy Internet site without weakening its efficiency. Memcached will allow you to increase the load speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to boost the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
