Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated load considerably. Every time a page on an app-driven website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given webpage. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see out-of-date data. Memcached is a perfect choice for any Internet site that has numerous visitors, since it will make it really fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use Memcached with all Linux cloud web hosting packages offered by us. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can obtain with just a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the websites that you would like 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, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for traffic-heavy sites with large-size databases and many concurrent visitors. In this way, you can enhance the loading speed of every script-based site hosted on our servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory caching platform is perfect for any script-powered software application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made app, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two different features – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you run a traffic-heavy Internet site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

If you buy a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the caching platform comes with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own frequently visited Internet sites, you will be able to optimize their performance effortlessly and the reduced server load will permit you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end 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, irrespective of whether you’ve written it on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you obtain any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get Memcached as standard and you can set it up for any website that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing data as people access your site, so you’ll notice the results of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for lots of websites or for an extremely popular website without weakening its efficiency. Memcached will enable you to improve the loading speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your server.
