Memcached is a famous object caching platform, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites greatly in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a user conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be completed significantly quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for online shops, since every time a particular web page is accessed, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all cloud website hosting service offered by us. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first part determines the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for traffic-heavy sites with very large databases and plenty of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can increase the overall performance of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add Memcached to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and use its full potential for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the memory. These things determine how many sites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single resource-hungry site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular Internet apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to enhance the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with all VPS web hosting service that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it requires to function correctly is compiled when the virtual server is set up, so you can begin using the caching platform the moment your brand-new VPS is completely ready. The system memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given plan, but even with the low-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to optimize the overall performance of numerous websites hosted on the server at the same time and to lower the load on the machine even if you own data-loaded script-based web pages with lots of viewers. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-developed one, and you will detect the faster performance soon after you start 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 distributed memory object caching system once the server is assembled, without having to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you’ve chosen, but as our servers are extremely powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-heavy sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 GB. This will enable you to optimize the performance of extremely large Internet sites without efforts and you will detect the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database queries. You can use the Memcached caching system with any database-driven web page, including those that are based on widely used CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
