Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and decrease the generated server load considerably. Every time a webpage on an app-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a certain web page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. Memcached is an ideal solution for every Internet site that attracts plenty of visitors, as it will increase its loading speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system comes as an upgrade with every shared web hosting that we offer and you will be able to start using it as soon as you add it, as the extension that it needs so as to function properly is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each web hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the sites that can use Memcached, while the second one, which is available in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-heavy website with a large database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given time with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you get one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. The platform is ideal for any script-driven app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a tailor-made app, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a traffic-hungry site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will boost the overall performance of your sites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you acquire a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the memory caching platform is offered with all virtual servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have resource-hungry sites, you’ll be able to boost their overall performance without efforts and the reduced server load will enable you to continue using your current VPS hosting package rather than upgrading 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 low-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven app, regardless of whether you have set it up on your own or you’re using a ready-made one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the content caching system as soon as the server is completely functional, without needing to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you have chosen, but as our servers are astonishingly powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-requiring sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of very large websites without efforts and you will note the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database calls. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any database-powered online portal, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
