Memcached is a commonly used data caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a customer searches for a certain product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be completed much quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for web shops, as anytime a specific page is opened, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with every cloud website hosting that we offer and you will be able to begin using it as soon as you enable it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to work properly is already installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every plan and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, defines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-intensive Internet site with a large-sized database may require more memory to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you need to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any point with a couple of clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated services that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to store your information. You can select them independently, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-demanding site, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those based on popular software applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached comes as standard with all VPS services that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs in order to work properly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is set up, so you can start using the data caching platform once your new Virtual Private Server is fully functional. The memory that Memcached can use depends on the given plan, but even with the lower-end ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of numerous sites hosted on the VPS simultaneously and to decrease the load on the virtual machine even if you manage data-rich script-powered portals with many viewers. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-made script, and you will distinguish the better overall performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching system the moment your server is completely operational, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve chosen, but since our servers are incredibly powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-heavy Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to increase the overall performance of very large websites with no effort and you will distinguish the difference shortly after the Memcached system starts caching database calls. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web page, including those that are based on widely used CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
