Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching system, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites considerably in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if someone conducts a search for a particular product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be performed considerably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for web shops, since anytime a particular page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every shared hosting package that we’re offering and if you wish to use it for any script-based site that you host on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache info, so for multiple websites (or for one resource-absorbing site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any point. With Memcached, every script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will load extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans offered by our company and make use of its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things indicate how many sites can use Memcached and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your info. You can select them independently, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for one large-scale Internet site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those based on widespread software applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with every VPS server that we are offering on the condition that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the maximum potential of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server package you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package. This will enable you to use Memcached for numerous Internet sites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the server. The caching system is suitable for script-based apps such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start storing info and you’ll see the optimized overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will get Memcached by default and you can set it up for any website that you host on your server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing data as people open your site, so you’ll see the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the caching platform for a lot of sites or for a very popular website without weakening its efficiency. Memcached will enable you to increase the speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to improve the overall performance of your server.
