Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and reduce the generated server load tremendously. Anytime a page on an app-driven website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a certain page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see outdated content. The platform is an ideal choice for every site that attracts numerous visitors, since it will make it faster than light and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each web hosting package that we’re offering and if you would like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given 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 at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache information, so for multiple websites (or for one single traffic-hungry site), you may want to order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers will load unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the memory caching platform’s setup takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to accelerate any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that we are offering provided that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the maximum capacity of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared hosting plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for numerous sites, regardless of how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading your virtual server. The caching system is suitable for script-driven web apps like OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will begin storing info and you will spot the enhanced performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the distributed memory caching system as soon as your dedicated server is completely ready, without having to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you have picked, but as our servers are unbelievably powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 GB. This will permit you to increase the performance of very large websites without any effort and you will notice the difference soon after the Memcached caching system starts caching database queries. You can make the most of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven portal, including those that are based on popular CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
