Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and decrease the produced server load tremendously. Anytime a page on an application-powered site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a given webpage. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never see old data. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for any website that entices many visitors, as it will make it lightning-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every website hosting plan offered by us and in case you’d like to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use Memcached simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache data, so for plenty of websites (or for one single large-scale site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will open amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, as the object caching platform’s setup takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much content can be cached, i.e. there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached platform to accelerate any script-driven website, including those based on widely used web apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS

When you buy a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got resource-requiring Internet sites, you’ll be able to boost their performance without any effort and the reduced load on the VPS will permit you to keep your current VPS hosting package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, irrespective of whether you have set it up yourself or you are using a ready-for-use one such as WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the caching system as soon as your dedicated server is ready, without the need to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are truly powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-hungry websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be three gigabytes. This will enable you to accelerate the performance of extremely busy websites with no effort and you will note the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can make full use of the caching system with any database-driven web portal, including those that are based on famous CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
