Memcached is a famous caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites immensely 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 returned, so when a visitor searches for a given product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be completed considerably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for e-commerce portals, since every time a web page is visited, the app sends a database query to get 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 If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a cloud web hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached object caching system to your shared hosting package with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the required extension is already installed on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different 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 offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a busy website with lots of data, you may need more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get Memcached as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages and since it works with any script-driven software app, you can use it for every site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what application you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-created one, etc. You can order the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two different things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things determine how many websites will use the Memcached system and how much memory the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two things are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any sort of website and both you and the site visitors will quickly distinguish the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

If you acquire a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the distributed memory caching platform comes with all virtual servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage traffic-hungry websites, you’ll be able to boost their performance without any effort and the lowered load on the VPS server will enable you to continue using your current VPS package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache information depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, irrespective of whether you have developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can enable it for each Internet site that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching info as users visit your site, so you’ll detect the results of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the caching platform for numerous Internet sites or for an extremely large Internet site without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will enable you to accelerate the speed of any database-driven Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to improve the performance of your dedicated server.
