Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load greatly. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a given webpage. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see old data. Memcached is an ideal choice for every site that attracts many viewers, as it will boost its speed and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each shared hosting package offered by our company and if you wish to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to enable it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use Memcached 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 the system will be allowed to use in order to cache data, so for multiple sites (or for one resource-hungry site), you should get more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, any script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open incredibly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup requires a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much info it will cache, i.e. there are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to increase the speed of any script-powered website, including those based on famous Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages offered by our company in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the platform through the section with the same name. The setup takes a few clicks of the mouse and you will detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache info depends on the given VPS hosting plan that you have selected, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several resource-demanding Internet sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other software app and decrease the load on your VPS, which will allow you to continue using the current plan rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a confirmation of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of our Linux dedicated servers and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached data caching platform as standard and you can enable it for each website that you host on your server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing data as people access your Internet site, so you’ll notice the result of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for multiple sites or for a very large Internet site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will allow you to improve the speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to optimize the performance of your dedicated server.
