Memcached is a famous caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a user conducts a search for some product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be performed notably quicker. This is valid for all types of database-powered applications and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a specific page is visited, the app sends a database request to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open 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 If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every Linux cloud hosting offered by us and you will be able to start using it as soon as you activate it, since the extension that it needs so as to run correctly is pre-installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with every hosting package and a new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive Internet site with a very large database may require more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you’d like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any time with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things show the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your information. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not linked to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single traffic-intensive Internet site, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its nature, including those based on widely used Internet applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you acquire a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the memory caching platform is available with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got content-heavy Internet sites, you’ll be able to improve their overall performance effortlessly and the lowered load on your Virtual Private Server will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server package instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can use Memcached with any database-powered application, no matter if you’ve set it up on your own or you are using a ready-to-use one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the object caching system as soon as your server is completely functional, without the need to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have selected, but since our servers are remarkably powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to improve the performance of very popular sites without effort and you’ll observe the difference soon after the Memcached system starts caching database queries. You can use the Memcached system with any database-powered online portal, including those based on famous CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
