Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can boost the performance of your website and lessen the generated server load greatly. Every time a web page on an application-driven website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a particular web page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing old content. The platform is an ideal solution for every site that draws lots of visitors, since it will make it extra-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a shared hosting account with us, you will be able to add Memcached to your shared web hosting plan with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the necessary extension is already installed on our advanced cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you manage a resource-hungry website with lots of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by us and make use of its full potential for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the memory. These things indicate how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your info. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single large site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those that are based on widely used software apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and many companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

If you get a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the memory caching platform comes with all VPS servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run data-loaded sites, you can optimize their overall performance effortlessly and the decreased load on your virtual machine will permit you to continue using your current VPS hosting plan instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache information depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, regardless of whether you have created it on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the caching system once the server is ready, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve chosen, but since our servers are really powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-intensive Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be three gigabytes. This will enable you to improve the performance of very busy sites with no effort and you’ll notice the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database queries. You can take full advantage of the caching system with any database-driven site, including those based on famous CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
