Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your site and lessen the generated server load substantially. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a given webpage. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see old data. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for every website that has lots of viewers, as it will make it super-fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system is offered as an upgrade with every shared web hosting offered by us and you’ll be able to begin using it the moment you order it, since the extension that it needs so as to run correctly is already present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every shared hosting plan and a new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, defines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A regularly visited site with a large database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you need to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with just a few clicks. The caching platform is suitable for any script-driven web app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-made application, and based on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a popular Internet site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will optimize the overall performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster load times.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans that we’re offering when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform through the section with the same name. The activation requires several clicks of the mouse and you will notice the difference in the performance of your sites almost immediately. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can employ to store information depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you have selected, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several popular Internet sites. You can use Memcached with sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other script and decrease the load on your server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which demonstrates its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you acquire any of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached platform by default and you can set it up for any site that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing info as people visit your website, so you’ll detect the result of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for a large number of Internet sites or for a very busy Internet site without compromising its efficiency. Memcached will allow you to speed up any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
