Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching platform, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your websites tremendously if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a user searches for a given product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be performed noticeably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, since every time a specific page is opened, the app sends a database query to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a shared hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your shared hosting plan with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the necessary extension is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight 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 memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you own a traffic-consuming site with lots of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated services that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your info. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one large-scale website, for instance. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widely used Internet apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS

When you order a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the distributed memory object caching platform comes with all VPSs ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got content-rich websites, you will be able to optimize their overall performance effortlessly and the lowered load on your server will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store content depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, regardless of whether you’ve built it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one such as WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this content caching system the moment your server is fully ready, without having to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve chosen, but since our servers are exceptionally powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-heavy Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will enable you to optimize the performance of extremely popular websites without any effort and you’ll detect the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database calls. You can make the most of the caching system with any database-driven portal, including those based on widely used CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
