Memcached is a widely used object caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when someone searches for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be carried out notably quicker. This goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for e-shops, since anytime a particular page is opened, the application sends a database query to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

If you host script-based sites in a website hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your web hosting plan with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the PHP extension required for it is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a larger website with lots of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the object caching platform’s setup takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much info can be cached, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is rather flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached platform to increase the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those based on famous web-based applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages that we’re offering when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup takes a few clicks of the mouse and you will distinguish the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ to store content depends on the particular VPS hosting package that you have selected, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several data-loaded sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet application and reduce the load on your virtual machine, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS hosting plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which proves its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you purchase any of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will get the Memcached object caching platform by default and you can set it up for each Internet site that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing information as people access your website, so you’ll see the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for multiple sites or for an extremely busy website without compromising its efficiency. Memcached will allow you to boost the loading speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart store, etc., and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated server.
