Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and lessen the produced server load tremendously. Every time a page on an application-powered website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a certain webpage. If any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see outdated data. Memcached is an ideal option for any website that draws numerous viewers, as it will make it amazingly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

The Memcached content caching system comes as an optional upgrade with every Linux shared web hosting package that we offer and you’ll be able to begin using it as soon as you enable it, since the extension that it needs so as to run correctly is already available on our innovative cloud platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each and every hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A popular website with a large-sized database may need more memory to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you need to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the object caching platform’s setup requires several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much info can be cached, in other words – there are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is rather flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to boost the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on famous Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you order one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will get the Memcached data caching platform by default and you can use it with any website that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start caching information as users open your Internet site, so you will detect the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for a large number of websites or for an extremely busy site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will permit you to optimize the loading speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to boost the performance of your dedicated server.
