Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and decrease the generated load drastically. Every time a web page on an application-powered site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info 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 displayed on a particular webpage. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is a perfect option for any website that attracts numerous visitors, since it will make it open much faster and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached caching system with all Linux website hosting packages offered by our company. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can order with only a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first one defines the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for frequently visited websites with large-sized databases and numerous visitors. Thus, you can supercharge the speed of any script-driven site hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the memory caching platform’s setup takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached 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 info it will cache, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to speed up any script-powered site, including those based on widely used applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the caching system the moment the dedicated server is fully functional, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you’ve chosen, but as our servers are stunningly powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 GB. This will enable you to improve the overall performance of very large Internet sites effortlessly and you will detect the difference soon after the Memcached caching system starts caching database calls. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any database-driven portal, including those based on widely used CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
