Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your Internet sites significantly in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a user conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be executed notably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for e-shops, as anytime a given web page is opened, the application connects to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every shared website hosting account that we offer and in case you’d like to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache info, so for numerous sites (or for one large site), you may want to get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, each script-powered website hosted on our servers will open faster than the speed of light.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the account, you can enable it with just a few clicks. The caching platform is suitable for any script-driven web app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom app, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you manage a traffic-intensive Internet site with lots of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. Memcached will improve the performance of your websites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available by default with all VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs so as to function properly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can begin using the caching platform once your brand-new virtual server is completely ready. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the low-end ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to boost the performance of numerous websites hosted on the server simultaneously and to decrease the load on the virtual machine even if you own high-demand script-based websites with multiple users. The Memcached platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom-developed script, and you will distinguish the faster performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this caching system once the server is completely ready, without the need to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have chosen, but as our servers are stunningly powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-demanding websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will allow you to increase the performance of extremely heavy websites without any effort and you will observe the difference soon after Memcached starts caching database queries. You can take full advantage of the caching system with any database-powered portal, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
