Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the created load significantly. Anytime a page on an app-driven website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a certain webpage. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date data. Memcached is an ideal option for any Internet site that attracts lots of visitors, since it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your shared web hosting plan with just a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the necessary extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you’ve got a traffic-consuming site with lots of content, you may require more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in your account, you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. The memory caching platform is perfect for any script-based web application like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made one, and based on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you run a high-demand website with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will accelerate the overall performance of your websites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much better loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you obtain a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the content caching platform comes with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own regularly visited sites, you’ll be able to increase their overall performance effortlessly and the reduced load on your virtual server will enable you to keep your current VPS hosting package instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use Memcached with any database-driven web app, regardless of whether you have created it yourself or you’re using a ready-made one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching system as soon as the server is fully functional, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are astonishingly powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-heavy sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be three gigabytes. This will enable you to enhance the overall performance of very large websites with no effort and you will observe the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database requests. You can make full use of the system with any database-driven web page, including those that are based on popular CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
