Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can boost the performance of your site and decrease the generated load immensely. Anytime a web page on an application-powered Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a given page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old content. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for every Internet site that entices a lot of visitors, since it will make it extra-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can use the Memcached object caching system with all Linux shared hosting offered by us. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with only a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large-sized databases and plenty of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can enhance the loading speed of any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll 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 account, you can activate it with just a few mouse clicks. The memory caching platform is perfect for any script-powered web app like WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house built one, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you manage a traffic-heavy website with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will optimize the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the object caching platform through the section with the very same name. The setup requires a couple of clicks and you’ll see the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to cache info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you’ve selected, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several resource-demanding sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based app and lower the load on your VPS server, which will enable you to continue using the current plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which proves its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

If you purchase any of our dedicated hosting and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform as standard and you can activate it for any website that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start caching info as users access your Internet site, so you’ll see the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for plenty of Internet sites or for a very large site without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to increase the load speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to improve the performance of your dedicated machine.
