Memcached is a commonly used caching system, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your websites tremendously in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a customer conducts a search for a given product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be carried out significantly quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, as anytime a particular page is opened, the application sends a database query to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached data caching system comes as an upgrade with every Linux cloud hosting service that we are offering and you can begin using it once you enable it, as the extension that it needs so as to run correctly is already installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each shared web hosting package and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A popular Internet site with a large database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so in case you wish to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with several clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated service that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the amount of memory. These things indicate how many sites can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to store your content. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-hungry website, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those that are based on widespread applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and many companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with every VPS server offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra money to be able to use the power of this object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared web hosting package. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for plenty of sites, irrespective of how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your VPS server. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-driven software applications like Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will begin caching content and you will see the optimized overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the data caching system as soon as the dedicated server is completely operational, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are pretty powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-consuming websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to increase the performance of extremely large websites without efforts and you’ll distinguish the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database requests. You can make use of the Memcached system with any database-driven portal, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
