Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the generated load substantially. Anytime a page on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a certain webpage. If any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see outdated content. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for any site that entices a lot of viewers, since it will make it astonishingly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux shared hosting plans that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can get with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a good idea for busy websites with large-sized databases and a lot of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the performance of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated plans offered by us and make use of its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the amount of memory. These things specify how many websites can use Memcached and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your data. You can select them separately, since one instance is not linked to a specific amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single traffic-intensive site, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those based on widespread Internet apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and lots of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans offered by our company when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform through the section with the very same name. The activation takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and you will distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to cache information depends on the particular VPS package that you’ve selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple traffic-heavy Internet sites. You can use Memcached with websites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet application and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to keep using the current VPS hosting plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which confirms its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of our Linux dedicated servers and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached platform by default and you can set it up for each website that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching information as users access your website, so you will see the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for many Internet sites or for a very heavy website without compromising its efficiency. Memcached will allow you to boost the loading speed of any database-powered Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your dedicated server.
