Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the performance of your site and decrease the created load tremendously. Anytime a page on an app-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a given web page. If any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see outdated content. Memcached is an excellent option for any site that has a lot of viewers, as it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a shared hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached memory caching system to your shared hosting plan with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the PHP extension needed for it is pre-installed on our innovative cloud platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you need. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you own a heavy-traffic site with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add Memcached to any of the Linux semi-dedicated services that we are offering and use its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to cache your info. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single resource-requiring Internet site, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its nature, including those based on widespread web apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and plenty of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

If you get a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the distributed memory caching platform comes with all VPS servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage large-sized sites, you’ll be able to accelerate their performance effortlessly and the reduced load on the Virtual Private Server will allow you to keep your current Virtual Private Server plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store data depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven application, regardless of whether you have developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the object caching system the moment the server is fully operational, without having to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have picked, but since our servers are unbelievably powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-requiring sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 GB. This will permit you to optimize the performance of extremely busy sites without any effort and you’ll see the difference soon after Memcached starts caching database calls. You can make full use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web page, including those based on famous CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
