Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated server load drastically. Every time a page on an application-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a given webpage. When any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date content. The platform is a perfect solution for every site that attracts plenty of visitors, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

You can make use of Memcached with all Linux website hosting that we’re offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can enable with just a few clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part reveals the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-demand websites with large-size databases and lots of visitors. In this way, you can improve the loading speed of any script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the caching platform’s activation requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much data can be cached, i.e. there are two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is rather flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to increase the loading speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on popular software apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is included by default with every virtual private server that we offer if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the maximum capacity of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for content storage 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 plenty of sites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading the server. The caching system is excellent for script-driven web applications such as OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start storing info and you’ll distinguish the improved overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching system as soon as the dedicated server is fully functional, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have selected, but as our servers are astonishingly powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-heavy websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be three gigabytes. This will enable you to optimize the performance of extremely busy sites without efforts and you’ll note the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database calls. You can make the most of the system with any database-driven website, including those based on popular Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
