Memcached is a commonly used data caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the performance of your sites considerably if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a client searches for a particular product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be completed significantly faster. That goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for web shops, as anytime a page is visited, the app sends a query to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any old info.

Memcached in Hosting

You can use the Memcached object caching system with all hosting that we offer. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can add with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for popular websites with very large databases and many simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can improve the overall performance of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers effortlessly.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-powered software app, you can use it for each site that you host on our servers, irrespective of what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-developed one, etc. You can add the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things show the number of the sites that will use Memcached and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your information. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make the most of Memcached 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

Memcached comes by default with each virtual private server offered by our company as long as you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to use the potential of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful package you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared package. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for multiple Internet sites, no matter how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading your virtual server. The caching system is perfect for script-powered software applications such as OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing info and you’ll notice the improved overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated hosting services that we are offering and the only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on famous Internet apps – for example, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-powered community site. Each dedicated machine is tied to a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to enhance the speed of very popular websites substantially, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will begin caching content as soon as it is activated, so shortly after that, you’ll note the optimized overall performance of your sites and the decreased load. A lot of websites use Memcached to increase their efficiency, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
