Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and lessen the generated server load drastically. Every time a webpage on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a certain webpage. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see outdated content. The platform is a perfect solution for any Internet site that draws lots of viewers, as it will make it load much faster and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached content caching system with all Linux shared hosting that we offer. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can order with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first part reveals the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for heavy-traffic websites with large-sized databases and numerous concurrent visitors. Thus, you can increase the loading speed of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the distributed memory caching platform’s setup takes a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to boost the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching system once the dedicated server is fully functional, without having to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are really powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-hungry Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 GB. This will enable you to increase the overall performance of extremely heavy Internet sites with no effort and you’ll see the difference soon after Memcached starts caching database calls. You can make full use of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven web page, including those based on famous Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
