Memcached is a widely used object caching system, which can boost the speed and the performance of your sites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a user conducts a search for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be performed noticeably faster. This goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for web stores, as every time a web page is opened, the application sends a database request to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached content caching system with all shared hosting plans that we’re offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can add with just a few clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first part reveals the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for busy sites with large-sized databases and numerous visitors. Thus, you can accelerate the overall performance of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the data caching platform’s setup takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much data can be cached, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to speed up any script-driven site, including those that are based on famous web-based apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

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 memory caching system once your server is completely operational, without needing to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have chosen, but as our servers are truly powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-heavy sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to increase the performance of very busy sites with no effort and you will see the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database calls. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven online portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
