Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated load drastically. Every time a page on an app-powered Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific page. When any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is an ideal solution for every website that attracts lots of viewers, as it will make it astonishingly fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached object caching system is available as an upgrade with each and every Linux shared hosting offered by us and you will be able to start using it the moment you activate it, as the PHP extension that it needs so as to function properly is already available on our advanced cloud platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each web hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the sites 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 the system can cache. A frequently visited website with a large database may require more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so in case you want to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given time with several clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and use its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things specify how many sites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your data. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one traffic-intensive Internet site, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widespread web applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and lots of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS

When you obtain a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the content caching platform comes with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage frequently visited sites, you can optimize their overall performance with no effort and the decreased load on your server will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be immense. 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 like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get the Memcached platform as standard and you can set it up for each website that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing content as users open your site, so you will see the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the caching platform for many websites or for a very popular site without weakening its effectiveness. Memcached will allow you to improve the speed of any database-driven Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated server.
