Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your site and decrease the created server load substantially. Every time a page on an application-powered site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a particular page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an ideal solution for any site that draws numerous visitors, as it will make it open faster and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a shared hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your hosting plan with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the necessary extension is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can start 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 memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you have a resource-absorbing site with lots of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based web application, you can use it for any Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what app you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom app, etc. You can add the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things define the number of the websites that will use the Memcached system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your information. The two things are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and the site visitors will quickly spot the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with each virtual private server offered by our company provided that you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the maximum capacity of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared hosting package. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for many websites, regardless of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the VPS server. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-based software apps such as WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will start caching info and you will notice the optimized performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this content caching system as soon as your dedicated server is up and running, without the need to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you’ve chosen, but as our servers are unbelievably powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-demanding sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be three gigabytes. This will enable you to boost the performance of extremely heavy websites without any effort and you’ll distinguish the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system starts caching database queries. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any database-powered online portal, including those based on famous Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
