Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced server load considerably. Every time a web page on an application-powered site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a given web page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old content. Memcached is an ideal solution for every website that lures lots of viewers, since it will increase its speed and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached content caching system is available as an optional upgrade with each website hosting offered by our company and you will be able to start using it once you enable it, as the PHP extension that it requires in order to perform properly is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each shared hosting package and a brand-new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A heavy-traffic site with a large database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you’d like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by our company and use its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the memory. These things show how many sites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to store your info. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single large-size website, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its nature, including those that are based on popular web applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and lots of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the caching platform via the section with the exact same name. The activation takes a couple of clicks and you will detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store content depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve chosen, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple traffic-consuming websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet app and reduce the load on your VPS server, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is an evidence of its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you buy any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached content caching platform as standard and you can enable it for each site that you host on your server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching info as users access your website, so you will detect the effects of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the caching platform for a lot of Internet sites or for a very heavy site without weakening its efficiency. Memcached will enable you to increase the speed of any database-powered site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your dedicated machine.
