Memcached is a widespread data caching platform, which can improve the speed and the performance of your websites greatly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if a visitor searches for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be carried out notably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for e-commerce portals, as anytime a specific page is opened, the app sends a request to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux web hosting that we are offering. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can get with only a few clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first one reveals the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for frequently visited sites with large-sized databases and numerous concurrent visitors. In this way, you can improve the overall performance of every script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services and since it works with any script-powered software app, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-built one, etc. You can add the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things indicate how many Internet sites will use Memcached and how much system memory the system will be able to use in order to cache your information. The two features are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and the visitors will swiftly spot the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with all VPS web hosting ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs to work properly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can begin using the content caching platform once your brand-new VPS is completely ready. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to accelerate the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS at the same time and to decrease the load even if you have traffic-heavy script-powered online portals with a lot of visitors. The platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom script, and you will notice the faster overall performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this distributed memory caching system the moment your server is assembled, without the need to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have selected, but since our servers are incredibly powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to improve the overall performance of very busy websites without efforts and you will detect the difference soon after the Memcached system starts caching database queries. You can use the Memcached system with any database-driven online portal, including those that are based on widely used CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
