Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and decrease the created load significantly. Every time a webpage on an app-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a specific webpage. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for any Internet site that has numerous visitors, as it will speed it up and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached data caching system comes as an upgrade with each and every Linux cloud hosting that we offer and you will be able to begin using it as soon as you order it, since the extension that it requires in order to function properly is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every shared web hosting package and a brand new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the websites that can use Memcached, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A popular site with a large-sized database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you want to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any time with a few clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached content caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-powered app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our servers, no matter what app you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-created application, etc. You can add the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things specify the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two features are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any kind of site and both you and the visitors will quickly note the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs so as to perform correctly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can start using the distributed memory caching platform as soon as your new VPS server is completely functional. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the low-end ones, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to boost the performance of multiple sites hosted on the server at the same time and to reduce the load even if you own frequently visited script-powered web pages with multiple users. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom-developed script, and you will detect the faster overall performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the object caching system once the server is completely operational, without having to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you have selected, but as our servers are extremely powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-hungry websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be three gigabytes. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of very large sites with ease and you’ll detect the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database calls. You can make full use of the system with any database-powered site, including those that are based on popular CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
