Memcached is a widespread data caching platform, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites substantially in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a user searches for a specific product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be completed significantly faster. This goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for e-stores, as every time a given web page is opened, the application connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every cloud hosting plan offered by our company and if you would like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in several simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use Memcached simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache info, so for many sites (or for one resource-demanding site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With Memcached, any script-driven website hosted on our servers will open faster than the speed of light.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers offered by our company and use its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the amount of memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to cache your information. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single large site, for example. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its type, including those based on widely used web-based apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and plenty of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to enhance the speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available as standard with all VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs so as to function properly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is configured, so you can start using the object caching platform the moment your brand new server is completely operational. The system memory that Memcached can use depends on the given plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to boost the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to decrease the load on the machine even if you’ve got content-rich script-powered web pages with many visitors. The caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-developed script, and you will detect the faster overall performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can use it with each website that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching data as users open your site, so you will notice the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for many websites or for a very busy website without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will allow you to increase the loading speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to boost the overall performance of your server.
