Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and lessen the produced server load greatly. Every time a page on an app-driven website is opened, the app 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 the content that should be displayed on a given page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see old content. Memcached is an excellent option for every website that entices numerous viewers, as it will make it extremely fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

If you host script-powered sites in a shared hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your hosting plan with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the necessary extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you have a larger website with lots of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the memory. These things define the number of the sites that can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one traffic-hungry website, for example. This feature 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-driven website regardless of its nature, including those based on popular Internet applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and many companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available by default with all VPS plans that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires to perform properly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can begin using the caching platform once your brand new server is fully ready. The system memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the lower-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to optimize the performance of numerous sites hosted on the server at the same time and to lower the load even if you run traffic-consuming script-based web portals with plenty of visitors. Memcached can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom-built one, and you will distinguish the better performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can activate it for each site that you host on your server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching information as users visit your Internet site, so you’ll detect the effect of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for lots of sites or for a very popular website without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to accelerate the load speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to improve the performance of your server.
