Memcached is a widely used distributed memory caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your websites significantly 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 returned, so if a client searches for a particular product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be completed considerably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for shopping portals, as every time a particular page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting package that we are offering and if you wish to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in several easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use in order to cache data, so for multiple sites (or for one large-sized site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With the Memcached caching system, every script-based website hosted on our servers will load unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-driven software application, you can use it for any website that you host on our servers, regardless of what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom-developed one, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things show how many websites will use the Memcached system and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache your data. The two things are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and your website visitors will quickly perceive the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The activation requires a few mouse clicks and you will see the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to cache information depends on the particular VPS plan that you’ve picked, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several resource-requiring sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other software app and decrease the load on your VPS, which will permit you to continue using the current VPS plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which shows its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you order one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform by default and you can activate it for each site that you host on your dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching information as people access your site, so you will see the results of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the caching platform for a lot of websites or for a very heavy website without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to increase the load speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart store, etc., and to optimize the performance of your dedicated machine.
