Memcached is a commonly used caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your sites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a customer conducts a search for a certain product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be performed noticeably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for web stores, since anytime a given page is opened, the application sends a request to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every cloud hosting package offered by us and in case you wish to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in several simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache data, so for numerous websites (or for one single large site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the data caching platform’s activation takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much content it will cache, in other words – there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is pretty flexible in this regard and we do not tie a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use Memcached to improve the loading speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on popular web apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS hosting services that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs to work properly is compiled when the VPS server is configured, so you can start using the memory caching platform once your brand-new VPS is completely functional. The system memory that Memcached can use depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to optimize the performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to reduce the load on the machine even if you have traffic-heavy script-driven websites with lots of users. The platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom-made one, and you’ll detect the better performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this object caching system once your server is fully operational, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are exceptionally powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of very busy sites without any effort and you’ll observe the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven website, including those based on widely used Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
