Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and lessen the created load significantly. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a certain webpage. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing outdated content. The platform is an excellent option for every Internet site that attracts a lot of viewers, since it will make it open much faster and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system is available as an optional upgrade with every cloud hosting plan offered by our company and you’ll be able to begin using it as soon as you order it, as the extension that it requires so as to run correctly is already available on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each shared web hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive site with a large-sized database may require more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you would like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a few clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the data caching platform’s activation requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is already 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 sites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we do not bind a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to speed up any script-powered website, including those that are based on popular web-based apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you buy a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the distributed memory object caching platform is available with all servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage data-loaded sites, you’ll be able to optimize their overall performance without efforts and the reduced load on the Virtual Private Server will permit you to keep using your current package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use Memcached with any database-driven app, regardless of whether you’ve written it yourself or you are using a ready-made one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

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 start using this caching system the moment your server is completely ready, without the need to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have chosen, but since our servers are really powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to optimize the performance of extremely busy sites with no effort and you’ll note the difference soon after Memcached starts caching database calls. You can make use of the Memcached system with any database-driven web portal, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
