Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and reduce the created load significantly. Every time a page on an application-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a certain page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see old content. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for any website that has numerous viewers, since it will make it extra-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a web hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our innovative cloud platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you run a popular website with a lot of data, you may require more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can add it with just a couple of mouse clicks. The data caching platform is perfect for any script-powered software app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-developed application, and based on your requirements, you will be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you have a traffic-hungry website with lots of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. Memcached will accelerate the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The activation requires a couple of mouse clicks and you will notice the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache content depends on the given Virtual Private Server package that you have picked, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple busy Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other software application and decrease the load on your virtual machine, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which demonstrates its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching system the moment your dedicated server is completely ready, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have chosen, but since our servers are exceptionally powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-heavy websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be three gigabytes. This will enable you to improve the performance of very busy Internet sites without efforts and you will distinguish the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database requests. You can use the caching system with any database-powered web portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
