Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated server load immensely. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a specific page. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never see outdated data. Memcached is an excellent option for any website that attracts many visitors, as it will make it super-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

You can use the Memcached object caching system with all hosting offered by our company. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for popular sites with large-sized databases and a lot of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the performance of any script-based Internet site hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the amount of memory. These things define the number of the websites that can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to cache your information. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single resource-requiring site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular software apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and many companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you purchase a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the data caching platform comes with all VPS servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got traffic-intensive sites, you can increase their overall performance without any effort and the lowered load on your server will permit you to keep your current plan instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web app, irrespective of whether you have created it on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you order any of our dedicated servers and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can activate it for each site that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing content as users visit your Internet site, so you will notice the results of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for a large number of sites or for an extremely large website without compromising its efficiency. Memcached will permit you to enhance the load speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart store, etc., and to optimize the performance of your server.
