Memcached is a widely used object caching system, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites substantially if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if somebody searches for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be executed much faster. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for shopping portals, as every time a particular page is opened, the application sends a database query to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each cloud website hosting plan that we offer and in case you’d like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache content, so for multiple sites (or for one large-scale site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, every script-based Internet site hosted on our servers will open lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your account, you can add it with only a couple of mouse clicks. The platform is perfect for any script-powered software application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed application, and depending on your demands, you will be able to select two different things – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you own a busy website with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will boost the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster load times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with every VPS server offered by us on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the maximum capacity of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared web hosting plan. This will allow you to use Memcached for many Internet sites, irrespective of how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading your VPS. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-powered web apps like OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will start caching info and you will detect the optimized performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on widely used Internet applications – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each server comes with a certain amount of system memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the load speed of very heavy sites seriously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will start storing content as soon as it is activated, so soon after that, you’ll detect the improved overall performance of your sites and the decreased load. Lots of websites use Memcached to improve their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
