Memcached is a commonly used content caching platform, which can improve the speed and the performance of your sites significantly in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a customer searches for a given product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be executed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for e-shops, since every time a given page is visited, the app sends a database request to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

The Memcached object caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to begin using it as soon as you activate it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to function correctly is already available on our innovative cloud platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use Memcached, while the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-heavy website with a large-sized database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you’d like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by us and use its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things show the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a particular amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one resource-intensive site, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its type, including those based on popular web apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with each VPS server that we’re offering provided that you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to use the power of this data caching system. The more powerful plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for lots of Internet sites, regardless of how popular they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading the VPS server. The caching system is perfect for script-powered apps such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached system, it will start caching data and you’ll observe the optimized performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the data caching system as soon as the server is set up, without needing to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you have picked, but as our servers are quite powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to enhance the performance of very busy Internet sites with no effort and you will notice the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can use the system with any database-driven website, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
