Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced load considerably. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific web page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see outdated data. Memcached is a perfect solution for any website that lures lots of visitors, since it will accelerate it and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached object caching system is offered as an upgrade with each and every Linux website hosting offered by us and you will be able to begin using it as soon as you activate it, since the extension that it needs so as to run properly is already available on our advanced cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with each and every shared web hosting package and a new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the sites which can use Memcached, while the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A busy site with a large database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you want to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a few mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The caching platform is suitable for any script-based software application like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built one, and based on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you manage a traffic-hungry Internet site with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will boost the performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster load times.

Memcached in VPS

When you order a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the content caching platform is available with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run resource-consuming sites, you’ll be able to accelerate their overall performance without any effort and the decreased load on your server will permit you to continue using your current VPS package rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache information depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have no less than several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can use Memcached with any database-powered application, regardless of whether you’ve created it yourself or you are using a ready-for-use one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated hosting offered by us and the sole condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on popular web-based applications – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered community website. Each server is tied to a different amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the load speed of extremely popular websites substantially, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will start caching info once it’s enabled, so shortly after that, you will see the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load. Plenty of websites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficacy, among them popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
