Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching platform, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically 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 searches for a particular product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be executed significantly faster. This goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for Internet shops, as every time a web page is opened, the app sends a database query to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your web hosting plan with only a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the required PHP extension is pre-installed on our innovative cloud platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites 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 add memory whenever you need. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you run a high-demand site with lots of data, you may need more memory in order 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 memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting services and since it works with any script-powered software application, you can use it for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom one, etc. You can order the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things specify how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching system and the amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two things are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any type of website and both you and your site visitors will swiftly note the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS services ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires in order to perform correctly is compiled when the VPS is set up, so you can start using the caching platform as soon as your brand new virtual server is ready. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to improve the performance of multiple websites hosted on the virtual server simultaneously and to reduce the load on the virtual machine even if you have content-rich script-driven websites with a lot of viewers. The caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-developed script, and you will see the better performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this distributed memory object caching system once your server is completely functional, without the need to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have selected, but since our servers are unbelievably powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to enhance the performance of extremely large websites with no effort and you will observe the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can make the most of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web page, including those based on famous Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
