Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can increase the performance of your site and decrease the produced load considerably. Every time a web page on an application-powered site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a specific webpage. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date data. Memcached is an ideal solution for any website that attracts plenty of visitors, since it will make it open much faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is perfect for any script-driven app like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-made application, and depending on your needs, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a popular Internet site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you acquire a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the platform is available with all VPSs ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage regularly visited Internet sites, you will be able to optimize their overall performance with ease and the reduced load on your server will enable you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, regardless of whether you have developed it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this caching system the moment the dedicated server is assembled, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve chosen, but as our servers are truly powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-requiring websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will permit you to improve the overall performance of very large Internet sites without any effort and you’ll distinguish the difference soon after the Memcached system starts caching database calls. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web portal, including those based on famous Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
