Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching system, which can improve the speed and the performance of your sites drastically if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when someone searches for a specific product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be executed much faster. This is valid for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online shopping portals, as anytime a page is accessed, the app connects to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-based sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your shared hosting package with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the PHP extension required for it is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you have a larger site with a lot of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-powered web application, you can use it for every site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what app you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-developed one, etc. You can request the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things define the number of the websites that will use Memcached and how much system memory the system will be able to use in order to store your data. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any type of website and both you and your site visitors will quickly spot the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS

When you get a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the platform is available with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own busy Internet sites, you’ll be able to boost their overall performance without effort and the reduced load on the server will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache info depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web application, no matter if you’ve created it yourself or you are using a ready-for-use one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching system the moment your server is fully functional, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you have picked, but since our servers are unbelievably powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-requiring websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 GB. This will enable you to optimize the performance of extremely large websites without effort and you will observe the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database queries. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web page, including those that are based on popular CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
