Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites significantly in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when someone searches for a certain product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be executed notably quicker. That goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for e-stores, since every time a given web page is accessed, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Website Hosting

If you host script-powered websites in a website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your plan with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the required extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a large-size website with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the memory caching platform’s setup requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much content can be cached, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is rather flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to improve the speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on popular web apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

When you get a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the content caching platform is offered with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage heavy sites, you’ll be able to enhance their overall performance with ease and the lowered load on your VPS server will permit you to keep your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be great. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, no matter if you’ve developed it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one like Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you acquire any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform as standard and you can enable it for any site that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing info as people visit your site, so you’ll detect the effect of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the platform for numerous Internet sites or for a very large website without weakening its effectiveness. Memcached will permit you to increase the load speed of any database-powered Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to improve the performance of your dedicated machine.
