Memcached is a commonly used caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a client searches for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be completed considerably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online stores, as anytime a web page is visited, the app sends a request to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each website hosting service that we are offering and you can start using it as soon as you order it, since the PHP extension that it needs so as to perform properly is already present on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every hosting plan and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A busy Internet site with a large-size database may need more memory to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you’d like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given point with several clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the content caching platform’s activation requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much information can be cached, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we do not tie a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to increase the speed of any script-driven website, including those that are based on popular applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

If you obtain a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the memory caching platform comes with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage content-rich Internet sites, you can boost their performance without efforts and the decreased load on your server will enable you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store info depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, regardless of whether you have created it on your own or you are using a ready-made one like OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you obtain one of our dedicated web hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will get the Memcached platform as standard and you can activate it for any website that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching info as users visit your website, so you will see the results of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for numerous Internet sites or for an extremely popular website without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached platform will permit you to boost the load speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your dedicated server.
