Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated server load tremendously. Anytime a web page on an app-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a certain page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. Memcached is an ideal choice for every site that attracts a lot of viewers, since it will make it faster than light and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached content caching system comes as an optional upgrade with every cloud web hosting that we’re offering and you can start using it as soon as you order it, since the PHP extension that it requires in order to work correctly is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each plan and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which comes in increments of 16 MB, indicates the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-heavy site with a large-sized database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so in case you wish to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with several clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages and since it works with any script-driven web app, you can use it for each website that you host on our servers, regardless of what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom one, etc. You can order the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things determine how many websites will use the Memcached system and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your info. The two features are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached with any type of site and both you and the visitors will quickly spot the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you order a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the object caching platform is offered with all virtual machines that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run traffic-hungry sites, you can increase their overall performance with ease and the lowered load on your virtual server will permit you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to store content depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered application, no matter if you have created it on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you buy one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached platform by default and you can enable it for any site that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching data as users access your Internet site, so you’ll detect the result of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the platform for numerous Internet sites or for a very large Internet site without weakening its efficacy. Memcached will enable you to accelerate any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to boost the overall performance of your server.
