Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your website and reduce the generated load greatly. Anytime a web page on an app-powered site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a given web page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see outdated content. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for any site that has lots of visitors, as it will make it blazing-fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is offered as an upgrade with each and every Linux shared hosting that we are offering and you will be able to start using it as soon as you order it, since the extension that it requires so as to perform properly is already available on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A regularly visited site with a very large database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you want to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any time with a couple of mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add Memcached to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by us and use its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the system memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to store your content. You can select them independently, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-requiring Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widely used Internet applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you purchase a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the data caching platform comes with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have data-heavy websites, you can increase their overall performance without efforts and the lowered load on your VPS server will permit you to keep using your current VPS hosting plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store information depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be great. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered web app, irrespective of whether you’ve developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-made one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached platform as standard and you can set it up for any website that you host on your dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing info as users open your Internet site, so you’ll see the effects of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for a large number of websites or for a very busy website without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will allow you to increase the speed of any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your server.
