Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated server load considerably. Every time a webpage on an application-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a given page. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see old content. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for every site that has a lot of visitors, since it will boost its speed and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can use the Memcached content caching system with all cloud plans offered by our company. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can order with just a couple of clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-traffic sites with very large databases and plenty of visitors. In this way, you can increase the speed of any script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with just a few clicks. The data caching platform is suitable for any script-based application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-developed application, and based on your demands, you’ll be able to select two separate features – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you have a traffic-intensive Internet site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will enhance the performance of your sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with each and every VPS server that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra money to be able to use the full capacity of this content caching system. The more powerful package you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared package. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for lots of sites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading the VPS. The caching system is perfect for script-driven apps such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached system, it will begin storing info and you’ll spot the optimized performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the content caching system once the dedicated server is assembled, without the need to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve picked, but as our servers are truly powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-heavy Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to enhance the performance of very popular sites without any effort and you will observe the difference shortly after the Memcached system starts caching database queries. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any database-driven web portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
