Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. 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 website and decrease the created load substantially. Every time a web page on an app-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a certain page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. Memcached is a perfect solution for any Internet site that has plenty of visitors, as it will make it faster than light and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a shared website hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached caching system to your hosting plan with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you need. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you manage a traffic-consuming site with a lot of content, you may require more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the platform’s activation requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much information can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is amazingly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to increase the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it needs in order to perform correctly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can start using the data caching platform once your brand new virtual server is completely operational. The memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to boost the performance of multiple websites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to reduce the load on the machine even if you own large script-driven websites with numerous users. The platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-made one, and you will detect the faster performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you get any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get Memcached as standard and you can activate it for each Internet site that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing information as people open your site, so you will detect the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the caching platform for a large number of sites or for a very large Internet site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached platform will allow you to increase the speed of any database-powered Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your server.
