Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your website and decrease the created server load substantially. Anytime a page on an application-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a given webpage. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. Memcached is a perfect solution for any Internet site that lures plenty of visitors, as it will increase its loading speed and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached memory caching system with all shared web hosting plans offered by our company. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the websites that you wish to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for heavy-traffic websites with large databases and many visitors. In this way, you can boost the performance of any script-based site hosted on our servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the memory caching platform’s activation requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much info it will cache, i.e. there’re two different upgradable features – the instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is amazingly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to boost the speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those based on widely used Internet applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with every VPS server that we are offering as long as you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra money to be able to take advantage of the full potential of this content caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared web hosting plan. This will allow you to use Memcached for lots of sites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your virtual server. The caching system is excellent for script-powered software applications such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will start caching information and you’ll detect the improved performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes for free with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company and the only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used software applications – for example, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-driven social networking site. Each server comes with a given amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to improve the loading speed of extremely heavy sites greatly, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin storing info the moment it is enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll see the improved overall performance of your websites and the reduced load. Plenty of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to increase their efficiency, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
