Memcached is a commonly used object caching platform, which can improve the speed and the performance of your Internet sites substantially in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a user searches for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be carried out noticeably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, as anytime a specific web page is opened, the app connects to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting that we offer and you can start using it the moment you activate it, since the extension that it requires so as to perform properly is already present on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with each plan and a new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use Memcached, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A popular Internet site with a very large database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you would like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with only a few mouse clicks. The memory caching platform is ideal for any script-driven web app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-built application, and depending on your demands, you will be able to select two different features – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you run a traffic-intensive website with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will increase the performance of your websites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached comes by default with each virtual private server offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the maximum potential of this data caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared web hosting plan. This will enable you to use Memcached for multiple websites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading your Virtual Private Server. The caching system is excellent for script-driven applications like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will start caching info and you’ll see the improved overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached data caching platform as standard and you can enable it for each Internet site that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start caching content as people visit your website, so you will detect the results of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the caching platform for many sites or for an extremely popular Internet site without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to accelerate the loading speed of any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated server.
