Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the generated load significantly. Every time a web page on an application-powered site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a particular webpage. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never see old content. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for every Internet site that attracts many viewers, as it will make it amazingly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting package offered by our company and in case you would like to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in several simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache content, so for a lot of sites (or for one resource-absorbing site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any point. With Memcached, any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will load blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the sites hosted in the account, you can add it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The object caching platform is ideal for any script-based web app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed one, and based on your needs, you will be able to select two different things – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you manage a popular Internet site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will enhance the performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster load times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the content caching platform through the section with the very same name. The setup takes a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll see the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to cache data depends on the given VPS plan that you’ve chosen, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several content-rich sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet app and lower the load on your VPS, which will enable you to keep using the current package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which demonstrates its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain any of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get the Memcached data caching platform by default and you can use it with any Internet site that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing info as users visit your site, so you will notice the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the caching platform for lots of sites or for a very popular website without weakening its efficiency. Memcached will enable you to improve the load speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to boost the overall performance of your server.
