Memcached is a commonly used memory caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a customer conducts a search for a given product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be carried out significantly quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, since every time a specific page is visited, the application sends a database query to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each cloud web hosting package that we’re offering and if you wish to use it for any script-based site that you host on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache data, so for numerous websites (or for one single traffic-intensive site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, every script-driven site hosted on our servers will open incredibly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s activation takes several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is amazingly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached to improve the loading speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on popular software apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with all VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs to perform correctly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can start using the distributed memory caching platform once your new VPS server is up and running. The system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the given plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to accelerate the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the server at the same time and to reduce the load even if you own large-size script-driven portals with a lot of users. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom script, and you’ll detect the faster performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the caching system the moment the server is up and running, without the need to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are very powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-consuming websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 GB. This will permit you to optimize the performance of extremely large sites without effort and you’ll detect the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database queries. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web page, including those based on widely used CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
