Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your sites immensely if 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 if a customer conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be carried out significantly faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for web shops, since every time a web page is accessed, the application sends a database request to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Hosting

If you host script-powered sites in a hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared hosting plan with only a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary extension is already installed on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you own a large website with a lot of content, you may need more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much info it will cache, i.e. there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is amazingly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use Memcached to increase the speed of any script-driven website, including those based on widely used apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform by default and you can set it up for each site that you host on your server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing content as users open your site, so you’ll detect the effects of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the caching platform for multiple websites or for a very popular Internet site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will permit you to optimize the loading speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to boost the performance of your server.
