Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and decrease the generated load substantially. Anytime a page on an application-driven website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a particular page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for every site that draws a lot of visitors, since it will make it open faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting offered by us. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can order with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for high-traffic sites with large databases and many concurrent visitors. Thus, you can accelerate the loading speed of every script-powered website hosted on our servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with just a couple of mouse clicks. The platform is perfect for any script-driven application like Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made app, and depending on your needs, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you run a regularly visited site with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will optimize the overall performance of your sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better loading times.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs so as to work properly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is set up, so you can start using the memory caching platform the moment your brand-new server is ready. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the particular plan, but even with the low-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to enhance the performance of multiple sites hosted on the server simultaneously and to reduce the load even if you’ve got high-demand script-driven web portals with a lot of users. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom script, and you will distinguish the faster performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you order one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can set it up for each Internet site that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching information as users visit your site, so you will notice the result of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for lots of websites or for an extremely busy website without compromising its efficacy. Memcached will enable you to increase the speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated server.
