Memcached is a commonly used data caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites immensely if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a client conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be carried out notably faster. This is valid for all types of database-powered applications and not only for web shops, as anytime a given page is accessed, the app sends a database query to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting plan offered by our company and in case you would like to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache data, so for lots of sites (or for one single resource-requiring site), you may want to order more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any point. With Memcached, each script-driven website hosted on our servers will open lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting services offered by us and use its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things specify the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your data. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large-size site, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its type, including those based on popular Internet apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS web hosting services ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs to work correctly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can start using the content caching platform as soon as your brand-new Virtual Private Server is completely functional. The system memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the given plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will allow you to increase the overall performance of numerous websites hosted on the server simultaneously and to lower the load on the machine even if you manage popular script-based websites with plenty of visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom-built one, and you’ll notice the better overall performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the distributed memory caching system the moment your dedicated server is completely operational, without the need to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have picked, but as our servers are extremely powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-requiring websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to improve the overall performance of extremely popular sites with no effort and you’ll see the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database requests. You can make the most of the system with any database-powered online portal, including those based on popular Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
