Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the created load significantly. Anytime a web page on an application-powered site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a particular page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see outdated content. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for any website that entices many viewers, as it will make it blazing-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached content caching system to your web hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the PHP extension required for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you manage a resource-hungry site with lots of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you buy any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with only a few clicks of the mouse. The caching platform is perfect for any script-based web app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made one, and based on your demands, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you own a traffic-hungry site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will enhance the performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the data caching platform comes with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own resource-intensive sites, you’ll be able to increase their performance without effort and the lowered server load will permit you to keep your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can use Memcached with any database-powered app, irrespective of whether you’ve developed it on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one like OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this object caching system once your dedicated server is fully operational, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have picked, but since our servers are stunningly powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-requiring sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 GB. This will allow you to boost the overall performance of very popular Internet sites without effort and you’ll note the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database calls. You can use the Memcached system with any database-driven site, including those based on widely used Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
