Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites greatly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a client searches for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be performed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, as anytime a given page is accessed, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting plan offered by us and in case you wish to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in several simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache content, so for multiple sites (or for one single resource-consuming site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will load much faster.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with just a few mouse clicks. The platform is perfect for any script-based application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed one, and based on your necessities, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you run a busy website with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will improve the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better load times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform via the section with the very same name. The configuration requires a few mouse clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you have chosen, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several resource-requiring sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other script and lower the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to keep using the current VPS hosting package rather than migrating to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated web hosting plans that we offer and the only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous web apps – for example, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-powered community website. Each dedicated server comes with a given amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the speed of very busy sites substantially, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will begin storing info the moment it is enabled, so soon thereafter, you’ll observe the improved overall performance of your sites and the lowered load on the dedicated machine. Many sites use Memcached to increase their efficiency, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
