Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can boost the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated load drastically. Every time a page on an app-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a certain page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for every site that entices a lot of visitors, as it will make it truly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached data caching system comes as an upgrade with each and every Linux shared hosting offered by us and you will be able to start using it once you enable it, since the extension that it needs in order to perform properly is already available on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with every web hosting package and a new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites which can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A popular website with a large database may require more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you want to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based software app, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our servers, irrespective of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-built one, etc. You can request the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things determine the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your info. The two things are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make use of Memcached with any type of website and both you and the website visitors will quickly see the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the object caching system once the dedicated server is completely ready, without needing to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are amazingly powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-consuming websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will permit you to improve the overall performance of very heavy Internet sites with ease and you will observe the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database calls. You can make full use of the caching system with any database-powered portal, including those that are based on widely used CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
