Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can boost the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load greatly. Every time a page on an app-powered site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a specific webpage. If any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see outdated content. The platform is an excellent option for any Internet site that attracts numerous visitors, since it will make it ultra-fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting plan offered by our company and if you want to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to order it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache content, so for multiple websites (or for one resource-consuming site), you’d better get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, any script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers will open amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup requires a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there are two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to improve the loading speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on popular web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with every virtual private server that we’re offering as long as you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the full power of this caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared plan. This will allow you to use Memcached for a lot of sites, regardless of how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading your VPS server. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-based web applications like Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will begin caching info and you’ll observe the improved performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated hosting services and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached caching platform as standard and you can use it with each Internet site that you host on your dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing info as people access your Internet site, so you’ll see the results of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached 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 allow you to use the platform for numerous sites or for an extremely heavy site without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to accelerate any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your server.
