Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated load tremendously. Every time a web page on an application-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a specific webpage. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see outdated content. Memcached is an excellent option for every site that has lots of viewers, as it will make it blazing-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each website hosting service that we are offering and you’ll be able to start using it as soon as you enable it, as the extension that it needs so as to perform properly is already installed on our advanced cloud website hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with every shared web hosting package and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is available in increments of 16 MB, specifies the total size of the content that the system can cache. A busy Internet site with a very large database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you wish to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached object caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based web app, you can use it for every site that you host on our platform, regardless of what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom one, etc. You can add the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things determine how many websites will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your info. The two features are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any kind of website and both you and your visitors will quickly detect the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is available by default with all VPS hosting services ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs so as to work properly is compiled when the VPS server is configured, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching platform as soon as your new VPS server is fully ready. The system memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the given plan, but even with the lower-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to reduce the load even if you manage frequently visited script-driven web portals with multiple visitors. Memcached can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-made script, and you’ll detect the better overall performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you purchase any of our dedicated web hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform as standard and you can enable it for any site that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing content as users open your site, so you will notice the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for plenty of Internet sites or for a very popular Internet site without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will allow you to improve the loading speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to optimize the performance of your dedicated server.
