Memcached is a widely used content caching system, which can improve the speed and the performance of your websites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a user searches for some product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be performed considerably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for Internet shops, since anytime a particular web page is opened, the app sends a query to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting account that we are offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use in order to cache data, so for lots of sites (or for one regularly visited site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, any script-driven website hosted on our servers will load extra-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-powered software application, you can use it for any Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what application you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-developed app, etc. You can order the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things specify the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two features are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come 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 the visitors will quickly detect the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available by default with all VPS servers ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs in order to function properly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is configured, so you can begin using the object caching platform the moment your brand new VPS server is up and running. The system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the low-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to accelerate the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to decrease the load even if you own large-scale script-powered web pages with multiple users. Memcached can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom-made one, and you will see the faster performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the object caching system as soon as your dedicated server is fully operational, without the need to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve chosen, but since our servers are remarkably powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-requiring Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to enhance the overall performance of extremely heavy sites without efforts and you’ll observe the difference soon after Memcached starts caching database requests. You can make the most of the caching system with any database-driven web portal, including those that are based on famous CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
