Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load drastically. Anytime a webpage on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a particular webpage. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing outdated content. Memcached is an ideal option for every website that has lots of viewers, since it will increase its speed and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a shared hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your shared web hosting package with just a few clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you own a busy website with a lot of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can add it with just a few clicks. The platform is ideal for any script-powered software application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a tailor-made one, and based on your demands, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you manage a busy Internet site with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will optimize the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans that we are offering when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the data caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup takes several clicks of the mouse and you will detect the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ to cache data depends on the given Virtual Private Server package that you have picked, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple traffic-hungry sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other web-based app and reduce the load on your server, which will permit you to keep using the current VPS hosting package instead of switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you get any of our dedicated servers and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached content caching platform as standard and you can enable it for each site that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching info as people access your site, so you’ll see the effects of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching 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 use the platform for numerous websites or for an extremely popular site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to increase the loading speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart store, etc., and to enhance the performance of your dedicated server.
