Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and reduce the generated server load drastically. Anytime a web page on an application-driven website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a specific webpage. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. Memcached is an excellent option for any site that has a lot of viewers, as it will make it amazingly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every web hosting plan that we are offering and in case you want to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache data, so for plenty of sites (or for one single traffic-heavy site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, any script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will open lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things specify how many sites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your info. You can select them independently, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single traffic-consuming website, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widespread software applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and lots of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

If you order a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the distributed memory object caching platform is offered with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got traffic-intensive sites, you’ll be able to improve their overall performance without any effort and the reduced load on the VPS server will enable you to continue using your current plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store data depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be great. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered web app, no matter if you’ve built it yourself or you’re using a ready-made one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you buy any of our dedicated hosting services and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached object caching platform by default and you can activate it for any site that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching content as users access your Internet site, so you will notice the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for lots of sites or for an extremely popular site without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to increase the speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to improve the overall performance of your server.
