Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can boost the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated server load drastically. Every time a page on an app-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a specific page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is an excellent choice for every site that draws a lot of viewers, since it will boost its speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we’re offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use Memcached at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache content, so for multiple sites (or for one single frequently visited site), you may want to get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, each script-based Internet site hosted on our servers will load unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can add it with only a couple of clicks. The distributed memory caching platform is suitable for any script-based software app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-built one, and based on your demands, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you have a high-demand website with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will enhance the performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the caching platform is available with all virtual machines that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got content-rich websites, you will be able to boost their overall performance with no effort and the reduced load on your VPS will enable you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server package instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to store info depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered application, regardless of whether you’ve set it up yourself or you are using a ready-made one like Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this distributed memory object caching system as soon as your dedicated server is assembled, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are rather powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-consuming Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 GB. This will permit you to increase the performance of very heavy websites effortlessly and you’ll detect the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system starts caching database queries. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any database-driven portal, including those based on popular Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
