Memcached is a popular distributed memory caching system, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your websites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a visitor searches for a specific product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be carried out notably quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for Internet shops, as anytime a particular page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every Linux shared website hosting offered by our company and you’ll be able to start using it as soon as you order it, as the extension that it requires so as to perform properly is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every shared web hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the sites which can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A popular Internet site with a large-sized database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you need to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given point with a few clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can add it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The platform is perfect for any script-driven web app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom one, and depending on your needs, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a traffic-intensive Internet site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. Memcached will accelerate the performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

If you order a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the memory caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got regularly visited sites, you will be able to optimize their performance without any effort and the decreased load on the virtual machine will enable you to keep your current VPS plan instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store content depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, regardless of whether you have created it on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated web hosting offered by our company and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on famous web-based apps – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each dedicated machine comes with a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to optimize the load speed of very busy sites enormously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start caching information the moment it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you’ll observe the enhanced overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced server load. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached system to boost their efficacy, among them popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
