Memcached is a famous content caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when somebody conducts a search for a particular product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be carried out much quicker. This goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online shopping portals, since every time a given web page is opened, the app sends a database request to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Hosting

The Memcached object caching system is available as an upgrade with each and every Linux hosting that we are offering and you’ll be able to begin using it the moment you add it, as the extension that it requires in order to work correctly is already available on our advanced cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use Memcached, while the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A regularly visited Internet site with a very large database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you’d like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any point with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get Memcached as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-based web app, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our servers, no matter what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-created app, etc. You can request the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things define how many websites will use the Memcached system and how much memory the system will be able to use to cache your data. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and the visitors will quickly perceive the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you acquire a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the memory caching platform comes with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own regularly visited Internet sites, you’ll be able to enhance their overall performance without efforts and the lowered load will allow you to keep your current plan instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache information depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven app, no matter if you’ve built it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this content caching system once the dedicated server is fully operational, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve chosen, but as our servers are quite powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-requiring sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to accelerate the performance of extremely large sites effortlessly and you will observe the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database calls. You can take full advantage of the caching system with any database-powered website, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
