Memcached is a widely used distributed memory caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your sites considerably if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a visitor conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be performed noticeably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, since every time a given web page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached data caching system with all web hosting offered by our company. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can add with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for regularly visited websites with very large databases and many users. Thus, you can optimize the speed of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, as the distributed memory caching platform’s activation requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much data it will cache, i.e. there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we do not tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached to improve the loading speed of any script-driven website, including those that are based on popular web applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS

When you purchase a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the object caching platform is available with all virtual machines that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own frequently visited websites, you will be able to increase their performance without any effort and the reduced server load will permit you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can use Memcached with any database-driven application, no matter if you’ve written it on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the content caching system the moment your dedicated server is ready, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you have selected, but since our servers are quite powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-hungry Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of very popular Internet sites without any effort and you will note the difference soon after the Memcached system starts caching database requests. You can make use of the Memcached system with any database-powered online portal, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
