Memcached is a widespread content caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites substantially in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a user conducts a search for a certain product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be completed considerably faster. That goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a given page is accessed, the app sends a database query to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Hosting

You can use the Memcached content caching system with all hosting that we offer. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can enable with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for busy websites with large databases and numerous visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the speed of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-driven web application, you can use it for every website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what app you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom app, etc. You can order the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In other words, these things specify how many sites will use the Memcached system and how much system memory the system will be able to use to cache your data. The two things are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any type of site and both you and your website visitors will swiftly see the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with each and every VPS server that we are offering on the condition that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the maximum capacity of this data caching system. The more powerful VPS package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared hosting package. This will enable you to use Memcached for multiple sites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading the virtual server. The caching system is excellent for script-driven web applications like Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-built app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will begin storing data and you will distinguish the optimized overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of our Linux dedicated service and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get Memcached as standard and you can set it up for each Internet site that you host on your dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching content as people access your site, so you will see the effects of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the caching platform for multiple websites or for a very busy site without compromising its efficacy. Memcached will enable you to accelerate the loading speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated server.
