Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the created server load significantly. Every time a page on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a particular web page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is an ideal option for every site that has lots of visitors, as it will make it really fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached data caching system with all shared web hosting services offered by us. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with only a few clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for high-traffic sites with large-size databases and a lot of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can optimize the speed of every script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers effortlessly.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the memory caching platform’s activation takes a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much info it will cache, i.e. there are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to accelerate any script-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used Internet apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is included by default with every virtual private server that we are offering on the condition that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra cash to be able to use the full power of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for plenty of websites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the VPS. The caching system is suitable for script-powered software apps like Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-built app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will start storing information and you will notice the enhanced overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the caching system as soon as your dedicated server is set up, without the need to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have chosen, but as our servers are amazingly powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-heavy websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to improve the performance of extremely heavy Internet sites without effort and you will notice the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems such as WordPress and Joomla.
