Memcached is a widespread content caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your sites immensely in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a customer searches for a specific product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be performed much quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a page is opened, the app sends a request to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached object caching system with all Linux shared web hosting packages that we are offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with just a couple of clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first one determines the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for traffic-heavy sites with large-sized databases and plenty of users. In this way, you can accelerate the speed of any script-based site hosted on our servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The content caching platform is perfect for any script-powered software application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-made application, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to choose two different features – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you own a popular website with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will enhance the overall performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better loading times.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS hosting packages ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it requires so as to work properly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can start using the data caching platform the moment your brand new VPS is completely functional. The system memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the lower-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to accelerate the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to reduce the load on the machine even if you manage frequently visited script-based websites with many visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom-made script, and you will see the better performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you get any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can enable it for each website that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing information as users access your website, so you’ll detect the results of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for a large number of Internet sites or for an extremely busy website without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will enable you to boost the load speed of any database-driven Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated server.
