Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your website and reduce the created load considerably. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a certain webpage. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is an excellent option for any website that draws plenty of viewers, since it will increase its speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting account offered by our company and in case you’d like to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to enable it in several simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache data, so for multiple sites (or for one single large-scale site), you should order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, each script-powered website hosted on our servers will open extra-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the caching platform’s activation requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much information can be cached, in other words – there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can add 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 tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to increase the loading speed of any script-driven website, including those that are based on famous software applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages that we offer in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform via the section with the same name. The activation takes a few clicks of the mouse and you will see the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache information depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you have selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several traffic-hungry Internet sites. You can use Memcached with sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet app and decrease the load on your server, which will allow you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a proof of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you purchase one of our dedicated web hosting and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can set it up for each Internet site that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing info as people open your website, so you’ll see the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for plenty of websites or for an extremely heavy Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to increase the loading speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
