Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the performance of your website and decrease the created load tremendously. Anytime a web page on an app-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a certain page. In case any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never see old data. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for any website that has a lot of visitors, since it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached caching system with all Linux hosting plans that we’re offering. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can get with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first part determines the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for busy sites with large-size databases and lots of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can enhance the overall performance of any script-based Internet site hosted on our servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with just a few mouse clicks. The object caching platform is suitable for any script-powered web application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made one, and depending on your demands, you will be able to choose two separate features – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you have a frequently visited Internet site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will improve the overall performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with every VPS server that we’re offering as long as you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the full potential of this content caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server package you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for a lot of Internet sites, regardless of how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your Virtual Private Server. The caching system is suitable for script-based software apps such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Soon after you activate the Memcached system, it will begin storing content and you’ll spot the optimized performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can enable it for any site that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing info as people access your website, so you will see the results of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for a large number of sites or for a very large website without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached platform will allow you to improve the load speed of any database-powered site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to optimize the performance of your dedicated server.
