Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced server load significantly. Every time a web page on an app-powered website is accessed, the application 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 be displayed on a specific page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see old content. Memcached is a perfect choice for any website that lures plenty of visitors, as it will make it astonishingly fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer and if you want to use it for any script-based website that you host on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to order it in several easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache info, so for plenty of sites (or for one single traffic-hungry site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With Memcached, any script-driven website hosted on our servers will open extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with only a few clicks of the mouse. The content caching platform is perfect for any script-driven web app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made application, and based on your demands, you will be able to select two separate features – how many websites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data 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 manage a high-demand site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the overall performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy better load speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

If you acquire any of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform as standard and you can use it with each website that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching data as people visit your website, so you will see the result of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for numerous websites or for an extremely large website without weakening its effectiveness. Memcached will allow you to speed up any database-powered Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
