Memcached is a widespread data caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your websites greatly in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a client searches for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be executed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all types of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, as anytime a particular web page is accessed, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each shared web hosting account offered by our company and if you’d like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache data, so for multiple sites (or for one single resource-demanding site), you may want to get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, any script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will load unbelievably fast.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the content caching platform is available with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage resource-intensive Internet sites, you can increase their performance without any effort and the decreased load will enable you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven application, irrespective of whether you have developed it on your own or you are using a ready-to-use one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you order any of our dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform as standard and you can set it up for any site that you host on your dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing data as people visit your site, so you’ll notice the results of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for plenty of websites or for a very popular website without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to optimize the speed of any database-powered site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated server.
