Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated load significantly. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the app 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 be displayed on a certain webpage. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. Memcached is an excellent choice for every website that draws a lot of visitors, as it will make it amazingly fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can make use of Memcached with all shared plans that we are offering. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can acquire with only a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin 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 sites that you wish to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. 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’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be a good idea for busy websites with very large databases and many simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can supercharge the performance of every script-powered site hosted on our servers effortlessly.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the memory caching platform’s activation requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much info it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to increase the loading speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on widely used web apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the object caching platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup requires a few mouse clicks and you will notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache info depends on the given VPS plan that you’ve picked, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several resource-requiring Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other script and lower the load on your virtual server, which will permit you to continue using the current package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which proves its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you get any of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get the Memcached caching platform as standard and you can use it with each Internet site that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching information as users open your website, so you will notice the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the platform for a lot of sites or for a very busy Internet site without compromising its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to accelerate the speed of any database-driven website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your dedicated server.
