Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can increase the overall performance of your website and decrease the generated load considerably. Anytime a webpage on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a specific web page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is a perfect option for every site that entices plenty of viewers, since it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached data caching system with all shared website hosting that we offer. It is available as an upgrade, which you can get with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you wish to use it for. The first part defines the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for popular sites with very large databases and many simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can optimize the overall performance of any script-based Internet site hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get Memcached as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-driven application, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our platform, no matter what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-developed application, etc. You can order the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things specify the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two features are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of system memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any kind of site and both you and your visitors will quickly detect the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS

If you purchase a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the platform is available with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage data-heavy sites, you will be able to enhance their performance with ease and the reduced load on your Virtual Private Server will allow you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, regardless of whether you’ve developed it on your own or you’re using a ready-made one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

If you purchase any of our dedicated hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform by default and you can enable it for each website that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing content as people access your Internet site, so you’ll notice the effects of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the platform for plenty of sites or for a very busy website without weakening its efficiency. Memcached will permit you to enhance the load speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated server.
