Memcached is a commonly used content caching system, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your websites immensely in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when someone conducts a search for a given product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be performed noticeably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for e-stores, since every time a specific page is visited, the application sends a database request to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host script-based sites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you can add Memcached to your web hosting plan with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the required extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you run a busy site with lots of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans offered by us and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much system memory it will use to store your info. You can select them separately, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single resource-demanding site, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widely used Internet applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to optimize the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes as standard with all Linux VPS servers ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs so as to function properly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is set up, so you can begin using the caching platform as soon as your brand-new server is fully ready. The system memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the particular plan, but even with the less powerful plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the Virtual Private Server at the same time and to reduce the load on the machine even if you have content-rich script-powered web pages with a lot of users. Memcached can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-developed one, and you will notice the better performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the distributed memory caching system once the dedicated server is fully operational, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve chosen, but as our servers are exceptionally powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-requiring websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 GB. This will permit you to optimize the performance of very popular websites without any effort and you’ll distinguish the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database calls. You can make the most of the system with any database-driven site, including those based on famous Content Management Systems such as WordPress and Joomla.
