Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the performance of your site and decrease the generated server load drastically. Every time a page on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a particular page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is a perfect choice for every website that attracts numerous viewers, since it will increase its loading speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can make use of Memcached with all Linux web hosting offered by our company. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with just a couple of clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the websites that you wish to use it for. The first one defines the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for busy sites with large-sized databases and plenty of users. In this way, you can improve the speed of every script-powered website hosted on our servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the memory. These things specify the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to store your info. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-consuming Internet site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those based on popular web applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the object caching platform is offered with all servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run heavy websites, you’ll be able to accelerate their performance with no effort and the decreased load on the server will enable you to keep your current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store info depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can use Memcached with any database-driven app, irrespective of whether you’ve developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this memory caching system as soon as your server is fully ready, without needing to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have selected, but as our servers are stunningly powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-intensive Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be three gigabytes. This will permit you to boost the overall performance of very popular sites without efforts and you will detect the difference soon after the Memcached caching system begins caching database calls. You can make full use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web page, including those based on popular CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
