Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and lessen the generated server load substantially. Every time a web page on an application-powered site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a given web page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see outdated data. Memcached is an ideal solution for any site that has plenty of viewers, as it will speed it up and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each web hosting plan that we’re offering and in case you want to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to order it in several easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get 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 a lot of websites (or for one resource-demanding site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any point. With the Memcached caching system, every script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your info. You can select them separately, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for one regularly visited website, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those based on widely used web-based applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and plenty of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you order a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the caching platform is available with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you have data-heavy websites, you can increase their performance with no effort and the decreased load on the virtual machine will allow you to continue using your current VPS hosting plan rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache content depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be tremendous. You can use Memcached with any database-powered web app, regardless of whether you have written it yourself or you’re using a ready-made one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this caching system the moment your server is set up, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve selected, but since our servers are unbelievably powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-intensive websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be three gigabytes. This will enable you to boost the overall performance of extremely busy websites without efforts and you’ll note the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database requests. You can make use of the system with any database-driven website, including those that are based on popular CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
