Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a client searches for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be executed much quicker. This is valid for all types of database-driven apps and not only for web shops, since anytime a given page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any old information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

When you host script-based sites in a shared website hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your shared hosting package with just a couple of clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the PHP extension needed for it is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a traffic-consuming site with lots of data, you may need more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached content caching system as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and since it works with any script-driven web app, you can use it for any website that you host on our servers, irrespective of what app you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom one, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things determine the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system and the amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your information. The two features are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and your site visitors will swiftly see the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with each virtual private server that we’re offering on the condition that you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the potential of this object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for lots of websites, no matter how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading the VPS. The caching system is perfect for script-based web apps like OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-developed app. Soon after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will start caching content and you will see the optimized overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you purchase any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will get the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform as standard and you can use it with any site that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching info as people open your Internet site, so you will detect the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the caching platform for multiple websites or for an extremely busy site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached platform will allow you to boost the speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to improve the overall performance of your server.
