Memcached is a famous distributed memory object caching platform, which can improve the speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a visitor searches for a certain product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be carried out considerably quicker. This is valid for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, as anytime a given page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all Linux cloud hosting that we are offering. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can obtain with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment 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’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for high-traffic sites with large-sized databases and numerous simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can improve the performance of any script-powered site hosted on our servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached object caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-powered app, you can use it for every site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom application, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things show the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached and how much system memory the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two things are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and your website visitors will quickly perceive the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you acquire a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the caching platform is available with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage resource-consuming Internet sites, you will be able to increase their performance effortlessly and the decreased load will permit you to keep your current Virtual Private Server package instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache info depends on the package that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, irrespective of whether you’ve written it on your own or you’re using a ready-made one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this data caching system once the server is up and running, without the need to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve selected, but since our servers are truly powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-heavy websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will permit you to enhance the overall performance of extremely popular Internet sites with ease and you will notice the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database queries. You can take full advantage of the caching system with any database-powered online portal, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems such as WordPress and Joomla.
