Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced load greatly. Every time a webpage on an application-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a specific page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for any site that entices a lot of viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a cloud website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the extension required for it is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a busy website with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the object caching platform’s setup requires a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much data can be cached, in other words – there are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can employ Memcached to accelerate any script-driven site, including those that are based on widely used apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached comes by default with all VPS that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it needs in order to perform correctly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching platform the moment your brand-new VPS is fully ready. The memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the given plan, but even with the low-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to enhance the performance of multiple websites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to decrease the load on the machine even if you own frequently visited script-based sites with many viewers. The Memcached platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-built one, and you’ll see the faster overall performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the content caching system the moment the dedicated server is fully operational, without needing to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are truly powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-consuming sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be three gigabytes. This will allow you to improve the overall performance of extremely busy websites with ease and you will distinguish the difference soon after the Memcached caching system begins caching database requests. You can use the Memcached system with any database-powered portal, including those based on famous Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
