Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load greatly. Anytime a page on an app-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a given page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see old content. The platform is an excellent option for any Internet site that entices many viewers, since it will make it open faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached object caching system with all Linux shared web hosting packages offered by our company. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can get with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one determines the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for high-demand websites with large databases and numerous concurrent visitors. Thus, you can boost the speed of every script-based Internet site hosted on our servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. The memory caching platform is perfect for any script-powered web app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a tailor-made app, and based on your requirements, you’ll be able to select two separate features – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you run a traffic-heavy website with lots of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much better loading speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

When you buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached platform by default and you can enable it for each site that you host on your dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing data as people access your website, so you’ll notice the effect of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for multiple sites or for a very busy Internet site without weakening its efficiency. Memcached will enable you to improve the speed of any database-driven Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your server.
