Memcached is a widely used content caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites considerably 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 if somebody conducts a search for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be executed notably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a given web page is accessed, the app sends a database query to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any old information.

Memcached in Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared hosting plan with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is pre-installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different 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 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you own a resource-intensive site with a lot of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and use its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your content. You can select them separately, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large-sized website, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. 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, WordPress or Drupal, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the object caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got data-heavy sites, you can increase their performance without efforts and the decreased load on your Virtual Private Server will enable you to keep using your current VPS hosting plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store content depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, regardless of whether you have written it on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

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 begin using the distributed memory object caching system the moment your server is fully functional, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are stunningly powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-consuming Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 GB. This will permit you to boost the overall performance of very heavy Internet sites without any effort and you will notice the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database calls. You can use the system with any database-powered web page, including those based on widely used CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
