Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your website and lessen the produced server load tremendously. Anytime a web page on an application-driven website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a particular page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for every Internet site that entices lots of viewers, since it will make it truly fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each cloud web hosting offered by our company and you will be able to start using it once you enable it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to function properly is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each shared web hosting package and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use Memcached, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive website with a large-sized database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you wish to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any time with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting service and since it works with any script-powered application, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our servers, no matter what app you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom application, etc. You can request the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things define the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your info. The two features are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can make use of Memcached with any type of site and both you and your site visitors will swiftly note the difference in the performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you acquire one of our dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you’ll get the Memcached platform by default and you can set it up for each website that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching information as users visit your Internet site, so you will detect the effects of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for multiple sites or for an extremely heavy Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. Memcached will enable you to optimize the loading speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your server.
