Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and lessen the produced server load immensely. Every time a page on an application-powered website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a specific webpage. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see old data. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for every site that lures many visitors, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each Linux shared hosting offered by us and you will be able to start using it the moment you add it, as the PHP extension that it requires in order to perform properly is pre-installed on our innovative cloud platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with every shared hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A busy Internet site with a very large database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you’d like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any point with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with just a few clicks. The content caching platform is suitable for any script-driven application like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made application, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you have a traffic-heavy website with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will boost the performance of your sites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster loading times.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans offered by us when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the content caching platform via the section with the very same name. The setup takes a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can employ to cache data depends on the given VPS package that you have picked, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple traffic-hungry websites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other web-based app and lower the load on your VPS, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of switching to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which shows its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you get any of our Linux dedicated hosting services and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order form, you will get the Memcached object caching platform by default and you can enable it for any Internet site that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing information as people access your website, so you will detect the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the platform for plenty of sites or for a very popular Internet site without compromising its efficiency. Memcached will permit you to optimize the speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart store, etc., and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
