Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching system, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your websites drastically 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 customer searches for a certain product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be performed significantly quicker. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, since every time a web page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly 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 If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

The Memcached object caching system is available as an upgrade with each and every Linux cloud website hosting offered by us and you will be able to begin using it as soon as you add it, since the extension that it needs so as to run correctly is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each shared web hosting package and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 MB, indicates the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A frequently visited site with a very large database may require more memory to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you want to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given time with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated service that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your data. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not linked to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one frequently visited Internet site, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those based on widespread web-based apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with each VPS server that we’re offering on the condition that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to use the maximum capacity of this object caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for plenty of Internet sites, regardless of how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your VPS server. The caching system is suitable for script-driven web apps such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will start caching info and you will spot the enhanced performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire any of our dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will get the Memcached data caching platform by default and you can set it up for each website that you host on the dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching information as users open your Internet site, so you’ll detect the effects of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the caching platform for a large number of websites or for a very popular site without compromising its efficiency. The Memcached platform will enable you to accelerate the load speed of any database-powered Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart store, etc., and to boost the performance of your dedicated server.
