Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the created load significantly. Every time a web page on an application-powered website 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, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a particular web page. In case any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. Memcached is a perfect choice for every site that draws plenty of visitors, since it will boost its speed and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

If you host script-powered websites in a hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your hosting package with just a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed extension is already installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you need. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you own a resource-requiring website with lots of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The memory caching platform is perfect for any script-powered app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-made application, and based on your needs, you will be able to choose two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you manage a traffic-hungry Internet site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will increase the performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans that we’re offering when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The activation takes a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you have picked, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple regularly visited websites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other app and lower the load on your server, which will permit you to keep using the current plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which verifies its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached data caching platform as standard and you can set it up for any site that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing content as people open your Internet site, so you will notice the effects of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the caching platform for many sites or for a very large site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached platform will permit you to optimize the speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
