Memcached is a commonly used content caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when someone searches for a particular product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be carried out notably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for e-shops, since anytime a specific web page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated information.

Memcached in Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your shared web hosting package with just a couple of clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary PHP extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you own a resource-intensive website with a lot of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with only a couple of mouse clicks. The data caching platform is ideal for any script-driven software app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-developed application, and depending on your requirements, you will be able to choose two different features – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a high-demand Internet site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will improve the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much better load times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with all VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it requires so as to perform properly is compiled when the virtual server is set up, so you can begin using the caching platform the moment your brand-new Virtual Private Server is fully operational. The memory that Memcached can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to enhance the performance of numerous websites hosted on the Virtual Private Server simultaneously and to decrease the load even if you run resource-demanding script-driven websites with many visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom-made one, and you’ll detect the faster performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform by default and you can set it up for each site that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing information as users open your site, so you’ll notice the results of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for lots of sites or for an extremely popular Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will allow you to enhance the load speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your dedicated machine.
