Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and lessen the created load considerably. Every time a webpage on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a specific webpage. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for every website that has numerous visitors, since it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of Memcached with all shared plans that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can enable with only a few clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for popular sites with very large databases and lots of users. In this way, you can accelerate the overall performance of any script-driven site hosted on our servers effortlessly.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer and use its full potential for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the system memory. These things determine how many sites can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to cache your data. You can select them separately, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single resource-heavy website, for instance. This upgrade 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 site irrespective of its type, including those based on popular apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with each VPS server that we’re offering as long as you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to use the maximum potential of this caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for lots of websites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading the virtual machine. The caching system is excellent for script-powered applications such as WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start caching data and you will observe the optimized overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the distributed memory caching system once your server is fully ready, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are really powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-heavy websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will allow you to enhance the overall performance of very busy sites with no effort and you will detect the difference shortly after Memcached begins caching database requests. You can use the Memcached caching system with any database-driven web page, including those based on widely used Content Management Systems such as WordPress and Joomla.
