Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the performance of your website and decrease the generated load immensely. Anytime a web page on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a given web page. When any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for any site that draws plenty of viewers, since it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every web hosting account that we are offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-based site that you host on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in several simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache information, so for numerous sites (or for one single resource-intensive site), you’d better get more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, each script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will load unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get Memcached as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated services and since it works with any script-based software app, you can use it for every site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-developed application, etc. You can add the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things indicate the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached and how much memory the system will be able to use to store your content. The two things are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and the visitors will swiftly note the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that we are offering as long as you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the full potential of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful VPS package you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for multiple Internet sites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading your Virtual Private Server. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-driven apps like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will begin caching info and you’ll spot the improved overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this content caching system once the server is completely operational, without the need to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are exceptionally powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-consuming websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to optimize the performance of very busy Internet sites without efforts and you will distinguish the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database calls. You can make full use of the system with any database-driven website, including those based on widely used Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
