Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced load drastically. Every time a webpage on an app-powered Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a specific webpage. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for any Internet site that draws lots of viewers, since it will make it ultra-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system comes as an optional upgrade with every Linux cloud hosting offered by our company and you will be able to start using it once you add it, as the extension that it needs in order to work properly is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every shared hosting package and a new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which is available in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A popular Internet site with a large database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you would like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any point with a couple of clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the content caching platform’s setup takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much content can be cached, i.e. there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we do not bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to increase the speed of any script-driven site, including those based on famous Internet apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you order any of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you’ll get the Memcached platform by default and you can set it up for any site that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching data as users open your site, so you will see the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for plenty of sites or for a very popular Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will allow you to optimize the speed of any database-driven Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated server.
