Memcached is a popular memory caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your websites substantially if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if somebody conducts a search for some product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be performed significantly quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for shopping portals, as anytime a specific web page is opened, the app sends a database request to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

The Memcached content caching system is offered as an upgrade with each Linux shared web hosting that we offer and you will be able to begin using it once you add it, as the extension that it requires so as to function correctly is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with each web hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A regularly visited site with a large database may require more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so in case you want to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given point with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things determine how many sites 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 linked to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one resource-requiring site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those based on widespread apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes as standard with all Linux VPS hosting service ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires in order to function properly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can start using the caching platform once your brand new virtual server is fully operational. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the lower-end ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to optimize the performance of numerous websites hosted on the virtual server simultaneously and to lower the load on the virtual machine even if you run resource-demanding script-driven sites with plenty of visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom script, and you will observe the better overall performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you acquire any of our Linux dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached object caching platform by default and you can activate it for any website that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing information as people open your Internet site, so you will notice the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for a large number of Internet sites or for a very popular Internet site without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to enhance the load speed of any database-driven Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
