Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated server load immensely. Anytime a page on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a given webpage. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an ideal option for every site that lures many visitors, since it will make it incredibly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a website hosting account with us, you will be able to add Memcached to your shared web hosting plan with just a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the necessary PHP extension is pre-installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you manage a high-demand website with lots of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get Memcached as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and since it works with any script-driven web application, you can use it for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-developed application, etc. You can request the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things define the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to store your info. The two things are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any type of website and both you and the visitors will quickly notice the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform via the section with the same name. The configuration requires a few mouse clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to cache content depends on the particular VPS package that you’ve selected, but in any case it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several popular websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other web app and reduce the load on your virtual machine, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is an evidence of its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you order any of our dedicated servers hosting packages and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached object caching platform as standard and you can enable it for any Internet site that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing content as users visit your site, so you will detect the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the package, the more 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 heavy Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will allow you to improve the load speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to boost the performance of your dedicated server.
