Memcached is a commonly used data caching platform, which can increase the speed and the performance of your Internet sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a customer searches for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be carried out notably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for web stores, as every time a particular web page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-powered site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your info. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single frequently visited 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-driven site regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widely used apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to optimize the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with each VPS server that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra cash to be able to use the full capacity of this content caching system. The more powerful package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package. This will permit you to use Memcached for plenty of websites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading the virtual server. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-driven apps such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached system, it will start storing content and you’ll spot the enhanced performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you order any of our Linux dedicated service and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can set it up for each website that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching content as users visit your website, so you’ll detect the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for multiple websites or for a very heavy website without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to boost the speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to improve the overall performance of your server.
