Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your sites greatly in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when someone searches for a particular product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be performed much quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for Internet shops, since anytime a specific web page is accessed, the app connects to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared web hosting package that we offer and you will be able to begin using it once you enable it, as the extension that it requires in order to work properly is already available on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with each hosting plan and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use Memcached, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A busy site with a large database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you wish to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with several clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add Memcached to any of the semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and use its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things determine the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to store your info. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single popular website, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those based on popular applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and plenty of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

If you obtain a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the platform is available with all virtual servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own resource-intensive sites, you’ll be able to enhance their performance without efforts and the lowered load on your VPS will enable you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, no matter if you’ve written it on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this memory caching system once your server is fully ready, without having to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you have selected, but as our servers are astonishingly powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-intensive sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be three gigabytes. This will allow you to improve the overall performance of extremely popular Internet sites with no effort and you will detect the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database calls. You can make use of the caching system with any database-powered website, including those that are based on famous Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
