Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and reduce the produced load significantly. Anytime a web page on an application-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a specific webpage. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see outdated content. Memcached is an excellent option for every website that entices numerous visitors, since it will boost its speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux cloud hosting offered by our company. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can obtain with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first one reveals the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for busy websites with large-size databases and numerous users. Thus, you can improve the overall performance of any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get Memcached as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting service and since it works with any script-powered software app, you can use it for every website that you host on our servers, irrespective of what application you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-built app, etc. You can order the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things define the number of the sites that will use the Memcached system and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your content. The two features are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can use the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and the visitors will swiftly see the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you obtain a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the data caching platform is available with all servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run frequently visited websites, you’ll be able to optimize their performance effortlessly and the reduced load on your virtual server will allow you to continue using your current VPS hosting plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store information depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven web application, regardless of whether you’ve written it yourself or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire any of our dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform as standard and you can use it with each site that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start caching content as users visit your site, so you will see the effect of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for plenty of Internet sites or for a very heavy website without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached platform will enable you to speed up any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to enhance the overall performance of your server.
