Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and lessen the created server load greatly. Every time a web page on an application-powered website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a particular web page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old content. The platform is a perfect solution for every Internet site that attracts many visitors, since it will accelerate it and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a cloud website hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached content caching system to your hosting plan with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary PHP extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a high-traffic website with lots of content, you may require more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer and use its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things define the number of the websites that can use Memcached and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your info. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a particular amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single traffic-heavy website, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular Internet apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and plenty of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the memory caching platform is available with all virtual servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own large-sized sites, you will be able to improve their overall performance without any effort and the reduced server load will allow you to continue using your current plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache information depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be great. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, irrespective of whether you have set it up yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one such as WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you order one of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached memory caching platform as standard and you can set it up for each website that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching info as people access your site, so you will notice the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for numerous sites or for a very heavy Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. Memcached will allow you to optimize the speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
