Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your site and reduce the created server load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an app-powered website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a particular web page. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is an ideal solution for any website that entices a lot of viewers, since it will make it blazing-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can make use of Memcached with all web hosting that we are offering. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can get with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first one defines the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for high-demand websites with large-size databases and a lot of users. Thus, you can enhance the loading speed of every script-powered site hosted on our servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, since the distributed memory caching platform’s setup takes several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much info it will cache, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to increase the speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on widely used software applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you get a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the distributed memory object caching platform is available with all virtual machines that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run data-heavy Internet sites, you can increase their overall performance without efforts and the decreased load on the VPS server will permit you to continue using your current VPS hosting plan instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web app, regardless of whether you have developed it on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the distributed memory caching system as soon as your dedicated server is assembled, without having to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you have picked, but since our servers are extremely powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-intensive websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will permit you to enhance the overall performance of extremely popular Internet sites without efforts and you will detect the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database requests. You can make the most of the system with any database-driven site, including those that are based on famous Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
