Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and reduce the created server load substantially. Every time a page on an app-powered website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a given web page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is a perfect option for every site that draws lots of viewers, as it will make it truly fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

The Memcached caching system is available as an upgrade with each Linux web hosting that we are offering and you’ll be able to begin using it the moment you activate it, since the extension that it needs so as to run properly is already installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with every plan and a brand-new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, defines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-heavy site with a very large database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so in case you’d like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given point with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-driven application, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom app, etc. You can request the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two different things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things show the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to store your content. The two features are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make use of Memcached with any sort of site and both you and the site visitors will swiftly spot the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

If you order a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the distributed memory caching platform is available with all servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run traffic-consuming websites, you will be able to increase their overall performance with no effort and the reduced load on the server will enable you to keep using your current VPS plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, no matter if you have developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-to-use one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you purchase any of our dedicated servers hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you’ll get Memcached as standard and you can use it with each site that you host on your dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing data as people open your site, so you will detect the results of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for a large number of websites or for an extremely popular Internet site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will permit you to improve the loading speed of any database-powered Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to optimize the performance of your dedicated machine.
