Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching system, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites greatly in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if a user conducts a search for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be performed notably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, since every time a given web page is visited, the app sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with every Linux cloud web hosting offered by us and you can start using it as soon as you add it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to perform properly is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each shared hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 MB, defines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A regularly visited Internet site with a large-size database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you would like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any moment with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the memory. These things specify how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your data. You can select them separately, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one large website, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those based on widespread Internet apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and a lot of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with every VPS server that we are offering as long as you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra cash to be able to use the power of this content caching system. The more powerful plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared hosting plan. This will enable you to use Memcached for a lot of sites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the VPS server. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-driven web apps like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Soon after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing info and you will notice the improved overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can use it with any site that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching content as users access your site, so you will detect the effects of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for multiple sites or for a very popular Internet site without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to increase the load speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
