Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the performance of your website and reduce the generated server load substantially. Anytime a web page on an app-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a given page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for any site that attracts numerous visitors, as it will make it truly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud web hosting package that we offer and you will be able to start using it once you add it, since the PHP extension that it requires in order to function properly is already available on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each hosting plan and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 16 MB, determines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-intensive site with a large-sized database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you need to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given moment with several clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the platform’s activation requires a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much content it will cache, in other words – there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we do not tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to increase the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on famous software apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you get a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the data caching platform is offered with all VPSs that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have data-loaded websites, you can enhance their performance without efforts and the decreased load on your VPS server will permit you to keep your current plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can use Memcached with any database-driven app, regardless of whether you have developed it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the caching system as soon as the dedicated server is up and running, without needing to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you have picked, but since our servers are quite powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-requiring Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will permit you to improve the overall performance of extremely popular Internet sites with no effort and you will notice the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database calls. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven website, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
