Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which is used to optimize the overall performance of database-driven sites by caching the calls and the responses between the website visitor and the server. To put it in simple terms, every time a specific page on such a site is requested, the script connects to its database to fetch the info that should be shown to the visitor. In case the latter clicks on a link to go to a different web page, the whole procedure is executed again and this results in lots of database requests and excessive load on the server, especially if the site has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so in case any of these web pages is visited again, the script no longer has to request any information from the database, since everything is provided by the caching platform. In this way, the overall loading speed of your site will increase and you will enjoy more pleased visitors and they will be able to navigate through your website faster. Besides, Memcached "refreshes" its cache every time any information in the database is updated, so the site visitors will never see outdated content.

Memcached in Website Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux website hosting packages offered by our company. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can obtain with just a few clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first one shows the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, 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 MB and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for popular websites with large-sized databases and many concurrent visitors. In this way, you can enhance the performance of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached data caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages and since it works with any script-based app, you can use it for any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what application you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-developed application, etc. You can request the upgrade via 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 indicate how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your data. The two things are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and the visitors will swiftly spot the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is included by default with every virtual private server offered by our company provided that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra cash to be able to use the full potential of this object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server package you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for plenty of websites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading your Virtual Private Server. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-based web applications like OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Shortly after you activate Memcached, it will begin storing information and you will see the enhanced overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get the Memcached platform as standard and you can activate it for any Internet site that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing data as users access your website, so you’ll see the effects of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for a large number of sites or for a very busy website without compromising its effectiveness. Memcached will permit you to boost the loading speed of any database-driven website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to optimize the performance of your dedicated machine.
