Memcached is a popular 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 API/database and the responses that are returned, so if somebody searches for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be executed considerably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for online shopping portals, as anytime a particular web page is opened, the app sends a database request to get the data that should be displayed. 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 If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host script-driven websites in a cloud web hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached caching system to your shared hosting plan with only a few clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the PHP extension required for it is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you need. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a traffic-consuming site with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the memory caching platform’s activation takes a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much data can be cached, in other words – there are two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to boost the speed of any script-powered website, including those based on popular software applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS servers ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires in order to function properly is compiled when the VPS server is configured, so you can start using the memory caching platform as soon as your brand-new Virtual Private Server is completely functional. The memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the VPS simultaneously and to lower the load on the machine even if you own data-loaded script-powered web portals with multiple visitors. The caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-built script, and you will notice the faster overall performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the data caching system the moment the server is set up, without having to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve selected, but since our servers are astonishingly powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-demanding sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 GB. This will permit you to boost the performance of very popular Internet sites effortlessly and you will see the difference soon after the Memcached system starts caching database calls. You can use the Memcached system with any database-powered site, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
