Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can boost the performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced server load tremendously. Every time a page on an app-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific web page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never see outdated data. The platform is an ideal solution for every site that lures numerous visitors, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your web hosting plan with only a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the required extension is already installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you like. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you have a traffic-intensive site with a lot of data, you may need more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the caching platform’s setup takes a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much content can be cached, in other words – there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached to boost the loading speed of any script-powered site, including those based on popular software apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

When you purchase a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the data caching platform is available with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage traffic-consuming Internet sites, you will be able to boost their overall performance without any effort and the reduced load on the virtual server will enable you to continue using your current VPS hosting package instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered application, no matter if you have developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-to-use one like OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached content caching platform by default and you can use it with each site that you host on your server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching information as people open your website, so you will see the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for a lot of sites or for an extremely large website without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to increase the loading speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
