Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load tremendously. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a specific web page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for any website that entices many viewers, since it will accelerate it and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system is available as an optional upgrade with every Linux cloud hosting package that we offer and you can start using it as soon as you activate it, as the extension that it needs so as to perform correctly is already available on our avant-garde cloud platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with each shared web hosting package and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-intensive site with a very large database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you would like to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any time with a few clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can add it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory object caching platform is ideal for any script-based web application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed app, and based on your necessities, you will be able to choose two separate features – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a busy Internet site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will increase the overall performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better load times.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that we offer if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the potential of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful package you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared hosting package. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for many sites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading the virtual machine. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-based software applications such as OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Soon after you enable the Memcached system, it will begin storing data and you will see the optimized overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you obtain any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached data caching platform by default and you can enable it for any Internet site that you host on the dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing info as users access your Internet site, so you will notice the effect of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for a lot of websites or for an extremely large Internet site without weakening its efficiency. Memcached will allow you to increase the speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to boost the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
