Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the performance of your website and decrease the generated server load substantially. Every time a webpage on an app-driven website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a certain webpage. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is a perfect solution for any Internet site that draws numerous visitors, as it will make it amazingly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached memory caching system with all hosting that we offer. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can obtain with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘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 got, the more data will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for high-traffic sites with large-size databases and a lot of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can optimize the speed of every script-based website hosted on our cloud servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-powered software application, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom application, etc. You can request the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer 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 simple terms, these things indicate the number of the sites that will use Memcached and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to store your information. The two things are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of system memory. You can make use of Memcached with any kind of site and both you and your website visitors will swiftly see the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the distributed memory caching platform is available with all VPSs that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run resource-heavy sites, you’ll be able to boost their performance with ease and the lowered load on the Virtual Private Server will allow you to keep your current VPS plan rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store content depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven app, irrespective of whether you have written it yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this caching system as soon as the dedicated server is fully ready, without the need to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you have picked, but since our servers are astonishingly powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to boost the performance of extremely heavy websites with no effort and you will distinguish the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database queries. You can make use of the caching system with any database-driven web portal, including those based on popular CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
