Memcached is a widely used object caching platform, which can increase the speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically in case 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 if someone conducts a search for a specific product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be executed considerably faster. That goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a particular page is visited, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached caching system with all web hosting offered by us. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can add with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for traffic-heavy websites with large databases and lots of users. In this way, you can increase the speed of every script-based Internet site hosted on our servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers offered by us and use its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the system memory. These things specify the number of the sites that can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to store your data. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one large-scale Internet site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its type, including those that are based on widely used apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available by default with all VPS servers that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it requires to function properly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can begin using the data caching platform the moment your brand new virtual server is up and running. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to accelerate the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the server at the same time and to decrease the load even if you own resource-demanding script-based portals with numerous users. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-built one, and you will observe the better performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this memory caching system as soon as your dedicated server is fully functional, without having to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have chosen, but since our servers are unbelievably powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 GB. This will enable you to improve the performance of extremely popular websites without effort and you will distinguish the difference soon after Memcached starts caching database calls. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any database-driven portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems such as WordPress and Joomla.
