Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated server load immensely. Every time a webpage on an app-powered Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a certain page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see outdated data. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for every Internet site that lures plenty of viewers, since it will make it amazingly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your web hosting package with only a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required extension is already installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you run a traffic-hungry site with a lot of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-based application, you can use it for each website that you host on our platform, no matter what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom one, etc. You can order the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things show the number of the websites that will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your content. The two features are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any sort of site and both you and the site visitors will quickly note the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with each VPS server that we are offering provided that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra money to be able to take advantage of the maximum potential of this object caching system. The more powerful VPS package you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared web hosting package. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for multiple sites, irrespective of how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the virtual server. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-powered applications like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-developed app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will start caching information and you will distinguish the enhanced performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the memory caching system the moment the server is completely ready, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have selected, but as our servers are really powerful and considering 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 gigabytes. This will allow you to accelerate the overall performance of extremely heavy Internet sites without any effort and you’ll observe the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database queries. You can take advantage of the caching system with any database-driven web portal, including those based on popular CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
