Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated server load drastically. Every time a webpage on an application-powered site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a particular page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never see outdated content. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for any Internet site that lures lots of viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-driven websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your web hosting plan with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you run a traffic-consuming site with lots of content, you may need more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the data caching platform’s activation requires a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is pretty flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to increase the speed of any script-driven site, including those based on popular apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you buy a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the platform comes with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage frequently visited sites, you can improve their performance effortlessly and the reduced load on the virtual machine will enable you to keep your current Virtual Private Server plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store information depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will get no less than several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can use Memcached with any database-powered web app, irrespective of whether you’ve set it up on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you get any of our dedicated service and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached data caching platform as standard and you can enable it for each Internet site that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing content as users visit your site, so you will notice the result of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is three gigabytes 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 caching platform for a lot of sites or for a very large site without compromising its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to improve the load speed of any database-driven Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your server.
