Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the created load drastically. Every time a webpage on an application-driven website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a particular page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is an excellent choice for any Internet site that attracts numerous visitors, as it will make it blazing-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each website hosting plan offered by us and if you would like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use Memcached simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache info, so for numerous sites (or for one large site), you may want to get more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers will load blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the platform’s setup takes several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to speed up any script-driven site, including those that are based on famous web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

When you get a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the data caching platform is offered with all virtual machines that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own data-heavy websites, you can increase their overall performance with ease and the lowered load on your VPS will enable you to continue using your current VPS hosting package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store information depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, irrespective of whether you have developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this data caching system the moment your server is set up, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have picked, but as our servers are astonishingly powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-requiring sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 GB. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of very heavy websites effortlessly and you will notice the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database calls. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any database-driven web page, including those based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
