Memcached is a widely used object caching system, which can boost 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 database/API and the responses that are returned, so if a visitor conducts a search for a specific product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be completed much faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for Internet shops, as anytime a given web page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a cloud website hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add Memcached to your web hosting package with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a popular site with a lot of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to boost the speed of any script-driven website, including those that are based on widely used web apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS plans that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires to work properly is compiled when the VPS server is configured, so you can start using the content caching platform as soon as your new virtual server is completely functional. The memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the less powerful ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of numerous websites hosted on the server at the same time and to reduce the load even if you’ve got heavy script-powered web portals with numerous viewers. The platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-built one, and you’ll notice the faster overall performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this memory caching system the moment the dedicated server is configured, without the need to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are rather powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-demanding websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to enhance the overall performance of extremely heavy websites effortlessly and you will observe the difference shortly after the Memcached system starts caching database queries. You can take full advantage of the system with any database-driven online portal, including those that are based on famous CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
