Memcached is a widespread memory caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if somebody searches for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be executed considerably quicker. That goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for e-stores, since every time a given page is visited, the app sends a database query to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your shared hosting package with just a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the required extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud web 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 (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a resource-requiring site with lots of data, you may need more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with just a few mouse clicks. The content caching platform is ideal for any script-driven web application like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built application, and based on your requirements, you will be able to choose two different features – how many sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you own a traffic-consuming Internet site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will enhance the overall performance of your sites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with each and every VPS server offered by us on the condition that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the potential of this caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared package. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for many sites, irrespective of how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the virtual machine. The caching system is perfect for script-driven apps like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Soon after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start caching information and you’ll observe the enhanced overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the object caching system once your server is up and running, without needing to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you have selected, but since our servers are quite powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-consuming websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to enhance the overall performance of very heavy sites without efforts and you’ll notice the difference soon after Memcached starts caching database queries. You can make use of the system with any database-powered site, including those based on popular CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
