Memcached is a commonly used caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your websites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a client conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be carried out noticeably quicker. This is valid for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, as anytime a page is opened, the application sends a database query to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

The Memcached object caching system is available as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting that we are offering and you will be able to begin using it the moment you add it, since the PHP extension that it needs so as to run correctly is already present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with each plan and a new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive site with a large database may require more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you wish to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to store your content. You can select them separately, since one instance is not bound to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single resource-heavy Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its type, including those that are based on widely used apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the data caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The configuration takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and you will distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store data depends on the given VPS hosting plan that you have chosen, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple intense-traffic sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other software app and decrease the load on your VPS, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of moving to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which proves its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this caching system the moment your dedicated server is fully operational, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve chosen, but since our servers are rather powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-requiring sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 GB. This will enable you to improve the performance of very large Internet sites without any effort and you will detect the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any database-driven website, including those that are based on widely used CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
