Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and decrease the generated server load greatly. Anytime a page on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a certain web page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing old data. The platform is an ideal option for every site that has plenty of viewers, since it will make it super-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

You can use the Memcached memory caching system with all hosting plans offered by us. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can acquire with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for high-demand websites with very large databases and numerous concurrent visitors. Thus, you can enhance the loading speed of every script-based site hosted on our cloud servers effortlessly.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things determine the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one large-scale Internet site, for example. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those based on widespread applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to optimize the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with each VPS server that we are offering on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to use the full potential of this object caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared package. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for lots of Internet sites, no matter how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the VPS. The Memcached caching system is excellent for script-powered web applications such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-developed app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will start caching info and you’ll perceive the enhanced overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can set it up for any Internet site that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start caching info as users visit your site, so you will notice the effect of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for numerous Internet sites or for an extremely popular site without weakening its effectiveness. Memcached will enable you to speed up any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your dedicated machine.
