Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching platform, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your sites tremendously 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 user conducts a search for some product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be carried out considerably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online stores, as anytime a specific web page is accessed, the app sends a query to its database to fetch 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 If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we offer and if you want to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use Memcached simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache content, so for numerous websites (or for one single resource-requiring site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, any script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will open amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached object caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-powered software application, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our servers, irrespective of what application you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-built one, etc. You can add the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things show how many Internet sites will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any sort of site and both you and the visitors will swiftly see the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the object caching platform comes with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own resource-requiring websites, you’ll be able to optimize their performance without efforts and the reduced load on the server will permit you to keep your current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use Memcached with any database-driven web app, regardless of whether you’ve created it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one such as WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes for free with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by us and the one and only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on popular software applications – for example, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated machine comes with a particular amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to improve the load speed of very busy sites considerably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start storing data as soon as it is activated, so soon after that, you’ll note the enhanced performance of your websites and the reduced load on the dedicated server. Lots of websites use the Memcached caching system to boost their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
