Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and decrease the created load considerably. Anytime a page on an app-powered Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a given page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. Memcached is an ideal solution for every website that has numerous viewers, since it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting package that we’re offering and if you want to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache content, so for multiple websites (or for one busy site), you may want to get more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any point. With the Memcached caching system, each script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will open blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s activation requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is exceptionally flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to increase the loading speed of any script-driven website, including those based on famous web-based apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup requires several mouse clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can employ to store information depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting package that you’ve selected, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-consuming Internet sites. You can use Memcached with websites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet app and lower the load on your server, which will enable you to continue using the current VPS hosting package instead of moving to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is an evidence of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages 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 enable it for each site that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching information as users access your site, so you’ll see the results of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for numerous sites or for a very popular site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to increase the speed of any database-driven website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
