Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the created load greatly. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven website is accessed, the application 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 specific page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old content. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for any Internet site that lures a lot of 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 distributed memory caching system with all Linux website hosting that we offer. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can acquire with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a good idea for high-demand sites with large databases and plenty of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can supercharge the overall performance of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated packages and since it works with any script-based software application, you can use it for any site that you host on our servers, regardless of what application you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom one, etc. You can request the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things specify the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your content. The two features are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and the website visitors will swiftly spot the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS

When you get a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage large-sized websites, you can accelerate their overall performance with no effort and the reduced load on your virtual server will permit you to continue using your current VPS hosting plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store content depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be great. You can use Memcached with any database-powered web application, regardless of whether you’ve created it yourself or you’re using a ready-for-use one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this caching system the moment your server is completely functional, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have chosen, but since our servers are extremely powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-intensive sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 GB. This will allow you to optimize the performance of very popular Internet sites without effort and you will see the difference soon after the Memcached caching system starts caching database requests. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered online portal, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
