Memcached is a memory 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 is using it, which can enhance the performance of your site and decrease the generated server load significantly. Anytime a page on an app-powered Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a particular webpage. When any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing old data. Memcached is an excellent solution for any website that lures plenty of visitors, since it will make it astonishingly fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-powered websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached content caching system to your shared hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the needed extension is already installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a larger site with a lot of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is ideal for any script-powered software application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-built one, and based on your necessities, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you have a traffic-consuming website with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will boost the overall performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached comes by default with all Linux VPS ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires to function correctly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can begin using the memory caching platform once your new VPS is fully functional. The system memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the particular plan, but even with the low-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to boost the overall performance of numerous websites hosted on the server at the same time and to decrease the load even if you own resource-consuming script-driven portals with numerous viewers. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom-made one, and you will observe the faster overall performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

When you buy any of our dedicated hosting services and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order form, you will get Memcached by default and you can activate it for each website that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing data as users open your website, so you’ll see the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for numerous sites or for an extremely heavy website without compromising its efficiency. Memcached will allow you to optimize the load speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your server.
