Memcached is a famous object caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your sites substantially if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if someone searches for some product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be carried out noticeably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for web stores, as anytime a given web page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users will not see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-powered sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your shared hosting package with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the PHP extension needed for it is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you want. Naturally, 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 to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-based web application, you can use it for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-built application, etc. You can request the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In other words, these things show how many websites will use the Memcached system and how much system memory the system will be able to use in order to cache your information. The two features are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a particular amount of system memory. You can make use of Memcached with any kind of website and both you and the website visitors will quickly distinguish the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available as standard with all VPS servers ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs so as to perform properly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching platform once your new VPS server is ready. The system memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of numerous sites hosted on the VPS at the same time and to decrease the load even if you own resource-hungry script-driven websites with a lot of visitors. Memcached can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom-made script, and you will see the better performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this caching system as soon as the dedicated server is configured, without having to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are amazingly powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-heavy Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to boost the performance of very heavy Internet sites without any effort and you will distinguish the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database queries. You can use the Memcached system with any database-driven online portal, including those based on famous Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
