Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load tremendously. Every time a page on an app-powered website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a certain page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see old data. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for any site that lures plenty of visitors, since it will make it load faster and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you can add Memcached to your shared web hosting plan with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the PHP extension required for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you have a large-sized website with lots of data, you may require more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things define how many sites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your information. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single regularly visited Internet site, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widely used Internet applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages that we are offering when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the platform via the section with the very same name. The configuration takes several clicks of the mouse and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to cache content depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you have selected, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several resource-demanding Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other software application and lower the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a proof of its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get the Memcached content caching 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 storing data as users open your site, so you will see the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for lots of sites or for a very popular site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to increase the load speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your server.
