Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your site and decrease the created load tremendously. Every time a web page on an app-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a certain page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see outdated data. The platform is an excellent choice for any site that has lots of visitors, since it will make it faster than light and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can use the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux web hosting that we are offering. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can acquire with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for high-traffic sites with large-size databases and a lot of users. In this way, you can accelerate the speed of every script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers effortlessly.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we’re offering and make use of its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate the number of the sites that can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to store your information. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single traffic-heavy Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those based on widespread Internet apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The configuration takes a couple of clicks and you will distinguish the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store content depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple large-scale sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other web-based application and lower the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which demonstrates its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you acquire one of our dedicated servers and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached object caching platform as standard and you can activate it for any site that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching information as users open your site, so you will notice the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for a large number of sites or for a very busy site without compromising its efficacy. Memcached will enable you to accelerate the speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to improve the performance of your dedicated machine.
