Memcached is a commonly used memory caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites greatly in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a client searches for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be completed considerably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online stores, since every time a given web page is visited, the app connects to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all website hosting that we are offering. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can get with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first one shows the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-demand sites with large-size databases and lots of users. Thus, you can enhance the speed of any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-based software app, you can use it for any website that you host on our servers, no matter what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom-created application, etc. You can add the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things show the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two things are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached with any type of website and both you and the visitors will quickly note the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes as standard with all VPS servers ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires to function properly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can begin using the object caching platform as soon as your brand new Virtual Private Server is up and running. The memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the low-end plans, you’ll 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 virtual server simultaneously and to decrease the load on the virtual machine even if you have high-demand script-based sites with multiple visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom script, and you’ll detect the faster overall performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the memory caching system as soon as your dedicated server is set up, without needing to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve picked, but as our servers are amazingly powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-hungry Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to boost the performance of very heavy sites with no effort and you will distinguish the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database calls. You can make the most of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven web portal, including those based on widely used CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
