Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and lessen the created load drastically. Anytime a webpage on an app-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a given webpage. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for any Internet site that draws plenty of visitors, since it will make it truly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

If you host script-powered sites in a shared website hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached content caching system to your hosting package with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you own a large-scale site with lots of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-driven app, you can use it for any Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what application you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom app, etc. You can order the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things show how many websites will use Memcached and how much memory the system will be able to use to store your content. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and the visitors will swiftly distinguish the difference in the performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you obtain any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can activate it for any Internet site that you host on the dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching info as people open your website, so you’ll notice the effect of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for a large number of websites or for an extremely popular site without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will permit you to improve the load speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to boost the overall performance of your server.
