Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated load drastically. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a specific page. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see old content. Memcached is an excellent choice for any site that entices a lot of viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use the Memcached caching system with all cloud website hosting services offered by us. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with only a few clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for high-demand websites with large-sized databases and numerous visitors. In this way, you can enhance the overall performance of every script-driven website hosted on our servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated services and since it works with any script-based software application, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what app you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom app, etc. You can request the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things specify how many websites will use the Memcached caching system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your content. The two things are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and the visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you order a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the content caching platform is available with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you have large-sized websites, you can improve their performance without efforts and the decreased load on the VPS will enable you to keep using your current VPS package rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be great. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven application, regardless of whether you’ve developed it on your own or you are using a ready-to-use one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you get any of our dedicated web hosting and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform by default and you can enable it for each site that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing data as people visit your Internet site, so you’ll see the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for a large number of sites or for a very busy Internet site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to optimize the load speed of any database-driven website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to boost the overall performance of your server.
