Memcached is a widely used memory caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your websites considerably if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a client searches for a specific product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be completed much quicker. This is valid for all types of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, since every time a given web page is visited, the app sends a database query to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-driven websites in a shared hosting account with us, you can add Memcached to your plan with just a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed PHP extension is already installed on our innovative cloud web 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 (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a busy website with lots of data, you may require more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached content caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based software app, you can use it for every website that you host on our servers, regardless of what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-developed app, etc. You can request the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things show the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your information. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of system memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and the visitors will quickly notice the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the memory caching system once your server is up and running, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have selected, but since our servers are quite powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-demanding sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 GB. This will enable you to improve the overall performance of extremely heavy sites with no effort and you will notice the difference soon after the Memcached caching system begins caching database requests. You can make the most of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered portal, including those based on popular CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
