Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated server load drastically. Anytime a web page on an app-powered website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific webpage. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for every Internet site that lures plenty of visitors, since it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all cloud hosting that we’re offering. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can get with only a couple of clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a good idea for busy websites with large-size databases and numerous users. Thus, you can supercharge the loading speed of every script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the memory caching platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is already installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to increase the speed of any script-driven website, including those that are based on famous software apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this distributed memory object caching system once the dedicated server is fully ready, without the need to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you have selected, but since our servers are unbelievably powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-heavy websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 GB. This will allow you to increase the overall performance of very busy websites without efforts and you will note the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system starts caching database queries. You can take advantage of the caching system with any database-powered website, including those based on famous Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
