Memcached is a popular distributed memory caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites considerably 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 if a visitor searches for a specific product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be completed notably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for web shops, as every time a specific web page is visited, the app sends a database query to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

The Memcached data caching system is available as an upgrade with every shared website hosting that we offer and you can begin using it as soon as you enable it, since the extension that it needs in order to function properly is already available on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every hosting package and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A regularly visited site with a very large database may need more memory to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any point with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer and use its full potential for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your information. You can select them separately, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one traffic-intensive Internet site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its nature, including those based on widely used applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with each and every VPS server offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the maximum potential of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan. This will permit you to use Memcached for multiple sites, no matter how popular they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading your virtual machine. The caching system is suitable for script-driven software apps such as OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you activate Memcached, it will begin storing data and you will note the improved performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this distributed memory object caching system as soon as the dedicated server is configured, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are amazingly powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-intensive websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to increase the performance of very large Internet sites without any effort and you will detect the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database requests. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web page, including those based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
