Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your website and lessen the produced load greatly. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a particular web page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see old data. The platform is an excellent option for any site that draws plenty of viewers, as it will make it open much faster and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached caching system to your hosting package with only a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed extension is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you wish. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you manage a high-demand website with a lot of data, you may require more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add Memcached to any of the semi-dedicated hosting services that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your content. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single frequently visited Internet site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its nature, including those based on widespread apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and plenty of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to optimize the speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans offered by us in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and you’ll see the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have picked, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple popular websites. You can use Memcached with websites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other web application and decrease the load on your virtual machine, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which confirms its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this data caching system as soon as the dedicated server is set up, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve selected, but since our servers are rather powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-consuming sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to increase the performance of very busy websites without any effort and you will distinguish the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database calls. You can take advantage of the system with any database-driven online portal, including those based on widely used CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
