Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and decrease the generated server load considerably. Every time a webpage on an app-powered website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a certain web page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is a perfect solution for any website that lures numerous viewers, as it will make it incredibly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your shared web hosting package with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you have a heavy-traffic site with a lot of content, you may need more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the object caching platform’s activation takes a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much content can be cached, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to increase the loading speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you purchase a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the object caching platform is offered with all virtual machines that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own content-heavy Internet sites, you will be able to accelerate their performance without efforts and the lowered load on your server will allow you to keep your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly 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 the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, irrespective of whether you have set it up yourself or you are using a ready-for-use one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this content caching system as soon as the server is assembled, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have selected, but since our servers are pretty powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-heavy sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to boost the performance of extremely heavy Internet sites with no effort and you will detect the difference soon after the Memcached caching system starts caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the system with any database-driven portal, including those based on famous Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
