Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and lessen the created load tremendously. Every time a web page on an application-driven website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a given page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. Memcached is a perfect choice for any Internet site that draws lots of visitors, since it will speed it up and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

You can use the Memcached caching system with all Linux website hosting packages that we’re offering. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with only a few clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – 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’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a good idea for high-traffic websites with large databases and a lot of users. Thus, you can supercharge the loading speed of every script-based site hosted on our servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the content caching platform’s setup requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we do not bind a given number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to improve the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used web-based apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is offered by default with each virtual private server that we’re offering as long as you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra money to be able to take advantage of the power of this memory caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for a lot of websites, irrespective of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the VPS. The caching system is suitable for script-powered apps like Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will begin storing info and you will spot the enhanced overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the caching system the moment your server is completely ready, without the need to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are exceptionally powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will permit you to optimize the performance of very heavy websites effortlessly and you’ll distinguish the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system starts caching database calls. You can use the caching system with any database-driven site, including those based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
