Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and decrease the produced server load immensely. Every time a webpage on an application-powered 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 omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a certain web page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. Memcached is an excellent solution for any website that draws many visitors, since it will make it amazingly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use the Memcached caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting plans offered by our company. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with just a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first one defines the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-traffic sites with large-size databases and many users. Thus, you can increase the overall performance of any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated plans offered by us and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things specify the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your info. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not linked to a specific amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one regularly visited site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on popular software apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and plenty of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the memory caching platform is available with all VPSs ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own data-heavy sites, you will be able to optimize their overall performance with no effort and the lowered load on the VPS will enable you to keep using your current VPS plan instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, no matter if you’ve set it up yourself or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the content caching system once the server is ready, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you have selected, but as our servers are incredibly powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-heavy sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to boost the overall performance of extremely busy websites without effort and you will notice the difference shortly after the Memcached system starts caching database calls. You can use the caching system with any database-powered website, including those that are based on popular CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
