Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your website and decrease the produced load greatly. Anytime a page on an app-driven website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a given web page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for every site that draws numerous viewers, since it will make it open faster and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

You can use the Memcached data caching system with all hosting plans that we’re offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can acquire with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for regularly visited sites with very large databases and a lot of users. In this way, you can optimize the speed of any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case 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 distributed memory caching platform’s activation requires a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start 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 websites can use it and how much content it will cache, in other words – there are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to speed up any script-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the memory caching platform comes with all servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage traffic-intensive sites, you can optimize their overall performance without effort and the lowered load on the virtual server will permit you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache info depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web app, no matter if you have created it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one like OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you acquire any of our Linux dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order form, you will get the Memcached memory caching platform as standard and you can enable it for any Internet site that you host on your server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing data as people access your site, so you’ll notice the result of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, 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 multiple Internet sites or for an extremely large site without compromising its efficiency. The Memcached platform will permit you to improve the loading speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to improve the performance of your dedicated machine.
