Memcached is a commonly used object caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites immensely if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if someone conducts a search for a given product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be completed noticeably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, since anytime a particular web page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every shared web hosting plan that we’re offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache data, so for plenty of sites (or for one single busy site), you may want to get more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, each script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will open blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the platform’s activation takes a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to boost the speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on famous apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

When you purchase a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the platform comes with all virtual servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run large-scale Internet sites, you’ll be able to optimize their performance with no effort and the decreased load on the virtual machine will enable you to keep using your current VPS hosting plan rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven application, no matter if you’ve set it up on your own or you are using a ready-made one like OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all dedicated servers hosting that we are offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on famous software applications – for example, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-powered social network. Each dedicated server comes with a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to enhance the speed of extremely popular websites significantly, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin storing information the moment it’s activated, so soon after that, you will observe the improved performance of your websites and the reduced load on your dedicated server. A lot of sites use the Memcached system to enhance their effectiveness, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
