Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and reduce the created server load tremendously. Every time a page on an app-powered Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a given web page. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for any Internet site that lures many viewers, since it will make it super-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each hosting plan offered by our company and if you’d like to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache information, so for numerous websites (or for one single traffic-consuming site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With the Memcached caching system, any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will open lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add Memcached to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we are offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things define the number of the sites that can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to cache your info. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a particular amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single traffic-consuming website, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widespread Internet applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and many companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached comes by default with each and every virtual private server that we are offering on the condition that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to use the full capacity of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for plenty of websites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading your VPS server. The Memcached caching system is excellent for script-driven applications such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you enable the Memcached system, it will start caching info and you’ll perceive the enhanced performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the distributed memory caching system once your server is configured, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have picked, but since our servers are quite powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-consuming sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of very large websites without efforts and you’ll detect the difference soon after the Memcached caching system starts caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any database-powered web portal, including those based on popular CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
