Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and decrease the produced server load tremendously. Every time a web page on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a given page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see old data. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for every website that has lots of viewers, as it will boost its speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host script-powered sites in a cloud website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your shared hosting package with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the necessary extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud web 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 Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you own a resource-demanding website with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-driven application, you can use it for any site that you host on our servers, irrespective of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom one, etc. You can request the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things determine how many sites will use the Memcached system and how much memory the system will be able to use to cache your data. The two things are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any type of site and both you and the site visitors will swiftly note the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is included by default with every virtual private server that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the potential of this content caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared hosting package. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for a lot of sites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading your VPS server. The caching system is ideal for script-driven software applications like OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will begin storing content and you’ll note the optimized overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

When you acquire one of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached content caching platform as standard and you can activate it for any site that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching information as users visit your Internet site, so you will detect the results of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the caching platform for a lot of websites or for a very heavy website without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to accelerate the speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to improve the performance of your server.
