Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced load significantly. Every time a page on an application-driven site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a particular webpage. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see outdated data. Memcached is a perfect solution for every site that draws plenty of viewers, as it will speed it up and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system comes as an upgrade with every Linux shared website hosting that we offer and you can start using it as soon as you activate it, as the PHP extension that it requires in order to work properly is already present on our avant-garde cloud platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each shared hosting package and a brand new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A heavy-traffic site with a large-size database may need more memory to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you would like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any time with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the data caching platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to increase the speed of any script-driven website, including those that are based on famous web-based apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

If you purchase a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the memory caching platform comes with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own content-loaded sites, you will be able to optimize their performance with ease and the reduced load on the Virtual Private Server will permit you to keep your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store information depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven application, regardless of whether you have developed it yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the memory caching system the moment your server is set up, without having to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you’ve selected, but since our servers are stunningly powerful and considering 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 is 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to enhance the overall performance of extremely large sites without efforts and you’ll notice the difference soon after the Memcached system starts caching database queries. You can make use of the caching system with any database-powered portal, including those based on famous CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
