Memcached is a widespread caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites immensely 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 delivered, so when somebody searches for a given product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be performed notably quicker. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for Internet shops, as every time a page is visited, the app connects to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users won’t see any old information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

If you host script-powered websites in a shared website hosting account with our company, you can add Memcached to your shared hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our innovative cloud 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 amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you want. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you manage a resource-requiring site with lots of content, you may need more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the content caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much info it will cache, in other words – there are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to boost the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on widely used web-based apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the distributed memory caching platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have traffic-consuming Internet sites, you will be able to enhance their performance without effort and the lowered load on your VPS server will permit you to continue using your current VPS package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web application, regardless of whether you have developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-to-use one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain any of our Linux dedicated service and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached content caching platform as standard and you can use it with any Internet site that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching info as people visit your Internet site, so you’ll see the results of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for a lot of Internet sites or for a very heavy website without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached platform will allow you to enhance the load speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated server.
