Memcached is a commonly used object caching platform, which can improve the speed and the performance of your sites immensely if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when somebody conducts a search for some product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be completed much quicker. This goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for e-shops, since anytime a specific web page is accessed, the app sends a database query to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with every cloud web hosting that we are offering and you’ll be able to begin using it the moment you enable it, as the PHP extension that it needs so as to run properly is already installed on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every shared hosting plan and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use Memcached, while the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, determines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A regularly visited site with a large-sized database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you would like to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with several clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the platform’s setup takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much information can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is rather flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to speed up any script-powered website, including those based on widely used Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

If you purchase a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run traffic-consuming websites, you’ll be able to accelerate their performance effortlessly and the reduced load on the server will enable you to continue using your current package rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, regardless of whether you’ve developed it on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the memory caching system once the dedicated server is ready, without the need to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are unbelievably powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of extremely busy websites without efforts and you will see the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database requests. You can use the system with any database-powered portal, including those based on famous Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
