Memcached is a widely used memory caching system, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a visitor searches for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be executed significantly faster. That goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for shopping portals, since every time a page is visited, the app sends a database query to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host script-based sites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your plan with only a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you like. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you manage a traffic-intensive website with a lot of data, you may require more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, since the content caching platform’s activation requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can add 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 given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to boost the speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on famous applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you acquire a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the caching platform comes with all virtual machines that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run traffic-consuming Internet sites, you’ll be able to boost their overall performance without efforts and the decreased load on your virtual machine will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be great. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven app, no matter if you’ve developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-made one such as Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

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 start using the memory caching system once the dedicated server is ready, without having to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have picked, but as our servers are incredibly powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-demanding sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to improve the overall performance of very popular Internet sites with no effort and you will observe the difference soon after the Memcached caching system starts caching database requests. You can take advantage of the caching system with any database-powered web page, including those that are based on famous Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
