Memcached is a popular memory caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your websites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a customer conducts a search for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be executed considerably faster. This goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for e-shops, as anytime a specific web page is accessed, the app sends a database query to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting package that we’re offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache data, so for a lot of websites (or for one single resource-demanding site), you should get more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, each script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers will open lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-powered site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the amount of memory. These things show how many sites can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to store your data. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a particular amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one resource-heavy Internet site, for example. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those based on widely used web-based apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to optimize the speed of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our dedicated servers and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can activate it for any site that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing information as users open your site, so you will detect the effect of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is three gigabytes 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 platform for lots of websites or for a very large website without weakening its effectiveness. Memcached will permit you to increase the speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your server.
