Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and reduce the produced server load significantly. Every time a webpage on an application-powered site 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 of the content that should show up on a particular webpage. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never see old data. Memcached is a perfect option for any website that draws numerous visitors, as it will accelerate it and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each shared website hosting package offered by our company and if you wish to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache information, so for multiple websites (or for one traffic-consuming site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will open much faster.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you order any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with only a couple of clicks. The content caching platform is perfect for any script-powered software application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-made application, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to select two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you run a traffic-heavy site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. Memcached will accelerate the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better loading times.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS hosting ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs so as to perform properly is compiled when the VPS server is configured, so you can begin using the object caching platform once your new virtual server is fully operational. The memory that Memcached can employ depends on the given plan, but even with the lower-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to optimize the performance of numerous sites hosted on the server at the same time and to reduce the load even if you run resource-demanding script-based sites with multiple viewers. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom script, and you will observe the better performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you acquire any of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order form, you will get the Memcached object caching platform as standard and you can activate it for each site that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching data as people access your website, so you’ll detect the result of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for a lot of sites or for an extremely busy site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will allow you to improve the speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
