Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching system, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your sites immensely in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if somebody conducts a search for a particular product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be completed noticeably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, as every time a particular web page is accessed, the app sends a database query to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system is offered as an upgrade with each hosting package that we offer and you’ll be able to begin using it once you activate it, as the extension that it requires in order to perform correctly is already available on our avant-garde cloud platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every shared hosting plan and a new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, determines 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 so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you need to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given time with a couple of mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your account, you can add it with only a couple of clicks. The platform is suitable for any script-driven web application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom app, and based on your requirements, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you run a traffic-consuming website with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will optimize the performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached comes by default with each virtual private server that we offer as long as you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the power of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server package you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for data caching 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 web hosting package. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for a lot of websites, irrespective of how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your server. The caching system is perfect for script-driven software applications such as OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start storing info and you’ll spot the improved overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the object caching system the moment your dedicated server is set up, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are extremely powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-heavy Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be three gigabytes. This will enable you to accelerate the overall performance of extremely busy websites without efforts and you will observe the difference soon after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can take full advantage of the caching system with any database-powered web portal, including those based on popular Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
