Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching system, which can boost the speed and the performance of your sites substantially in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a customer conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be carried out noticeably quicker. This goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for e-shops, since every time a particular web page is visited, the app sends a database query to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every web hosting package offered by us and in case you’d like to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use Memcached at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache information, so for plenty of sites (or for one resource-consuming site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load extra-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the content caching platform’s setup requires several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much data can be cached, in other words – there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to speed up any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on widely used applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you order a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the data caching platform comes with all virtual servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run traffic-consuming websites, you’ll be able to increase their overall performance without effort and the decreased load on the Virtual Private Server will permit you to keep your current package rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store information depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered application, irrespective of whether you have written it yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one such as WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this distributed memory object caching system the moment the server is up and running, without the need to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but as our servers are astonishingly powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-requiring Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will allow you to accelerate the overall performance of extremely heavy sites effortlessly and you’ll observe the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web portal, including those that are based on famous Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
