Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can boost the performance of your site and reduce the generated load substantially. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a specific webpage. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The platform is an ideal solution for any website that attracts plenty of visitors, since it will make it open much faster and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached content caching system with all Linux hosting packages that we’re offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with only a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first one reveals the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for popular websites with large-size databases and many visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the speed of any script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated packages and since it works with any script-driven app, you can use it for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what application you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-developed one, etc. You can order the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In other words, these things define how many websites will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two things are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of system memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any kind of site and both you and your website visitors will quickly detect the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you obtain a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the object caching platform is available with all servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage large-scale websites, you will be able to accelerate their performance without effort and the decreased load on your VPS server will permit you to keep your current Virtual Private Server package rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will have no less than several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered web app, regardless of whether you’ve created it yourself or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you buy any of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached memory caching platform as standard and you can set it up for any Internet site that you host on your server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching information as users access your Internet site, so you’ll notice the result of using it soon 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 system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for many Internet sites or for a very busy website without compromising its effectiveness. Memcached will enable you to accelerate the speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to improve the performance of your dedicated machine.
