Memcached is a commonly used memory caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites substantially if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a user 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 completed considerably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online shopping portals, as anytime a specific web page is opened, the application connects to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to begin using it the moment you activate it, since the extension that it requires so as to run correctly is already installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every web hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic website with a very large database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you would like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any point with a couple of clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached data caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-based app, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our platform, no matter what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom-created application, etc. You can order the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things determine how many sites will use Memcached and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your content. The two things are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of system memory. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any type of website and both you and your website visitors will quickly detect the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with each and every VPS server that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to use the full capacity of this memory caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared hosting package. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for plenty of sites, irrespective of how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading the virtual server. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-driven web applications like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will start storing data and you will notice the enhanced overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this memory caching system as soon as your server is fully operational, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you have picked, but since our servers are very powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-demanding sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be three gigabytes. This will allow you to optimize the performance of extremely popular Internet sites with no effort and you’ll see the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database queries. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any database-powered portal, including those based on popular Content Management Systems such as WordPress and Joomla.
