Memcached is a popular object caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your sites substantially in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when a client searches for a particular product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be executed much faster. This goes for all types of database-powered applications and not only for shopping portals, since every time a given web page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any outdated information.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 Website Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a shared website hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached content caching system to your plan with only a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you like. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a large website with lots of content, you may require more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the content caching platform’s setup requires a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much data can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is pretty flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to boost the speed of any script-powered website, including those based on popular apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages that we are offering when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The activation takes several mouse clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ to store info depends on the given VPS package that you have selected, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple data-loaded websites. You can use Memcached with websites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other software application and lower the load on your server, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our dedicated servers hosting packages and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached caching platform as standard and you can enable it for any site that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching information as users access your website, so you will detect the effects of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for multiple sites or for a very large site without compromising its efficiency. The Memcached platform will allow you to accelerate any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart store, etc., and to enhance the performance of your dedicated server.
