Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your website and lessen the produced server load greatly. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a particular webpage. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old content. Memcached is an excellent choice for any website that draws many visitors, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every cloud hosting account that we offer and if you’d like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache data, so for a lot of websites (or for one single resource-absorbing site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, each script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the account, you can activate it with only a few clicks of the mouse. The platform is ideal for any script-powered app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made one, and depending on your needs, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you own a traffic-heavy website with lots of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will optimize the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better load times.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you obtain a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the platform is available with all virtual servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run large websites, you’ll be able to optimize their overall performance with no effort and the lowered load on the virtual machine will enable you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to store data depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have no less than several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be tremendous. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered app, no matter if you have written it yourself or you are using a ready-made one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform as standard and you can set it up for each Internet site that you host on your dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching info as users access your site, so you will detect the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for many websites or for a very heavy Internet site without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached platform will permit you to accelerate the loading speed of any database-driven Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your dedicated server.
