Memcached is a widely used data caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the performance of your websites greatly in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a client searches for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be performed considerably faster. This is valid for all types of database-powered apps and not only for e-stores, since anytime a particular web page is accessed, the application sends a database query to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached caching system to your shared hosting plan with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the necessary extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you own a resource-requiring website with a lot of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things specify the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your info. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not bound to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single resource-intensive Internet site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widely used web apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

If you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the platform comes with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run data-heavy websites, you can optimize their performance with ease and the reduced load on your VPS will allow you to keep your current VPS hosting plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache info depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web application, irrespective of whether you have created it on your own or you are using a ready-made one such as Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this data caching system once your server is set up, without the need to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you have picked, but since our servers are extremely powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will enable you to boost the overall performance of extremely popular Internet sites with ease and you will observe the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any database-driven web page, including those that are based on famous CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
