Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites greatly if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a customer conducts a search for a given product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be performed noticeably faster. This goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, as every time a given page is visited, the application sends a database query to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of Memcached with all shared hosting that we offer. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with only a couple of clicks from 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 Memcached the moment you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a good idea for traffic-heavy sites with large-size databases and many concurrent visitors. Thus, you can accelerate the performance of every script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, as the memory caching platform’s activation requires a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to accelerate any script-driven website, including those based on widely used apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires in order to work correctly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is set up, so you can begin using the caching platform once your brand-new server is completely functional. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the particular plan, but even with the lower-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS at the same time and to decrease the load even if you own content-heavy script-driven web pages with a lot of visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom one, and you will observe the faster performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

When you get any of our dedicated hosting and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached object caching platform as standard and you can activate it for any website that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching info as people visit your website, so you will see the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the platform for multiple websites or for a very busy website without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached platform will permit you to enhance the loading speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
