Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your website and decrease the produced server load greatly. Anytime a web page on an app-powered Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a given web page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never see outdated content. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for every website that lures lots of viewers, as it will increase its speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting package that we offer and in case you would like to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache info, so for plenty of sites (or for one traffic-intensive site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, each script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will load blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the caching platform’s setup takes several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much info it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is exceptionally flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached platform to improve the speed of any script-driven website, including those based on famous Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans offered by us when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the content caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The configuration requires a few clicks and you’ll see the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can employ to cache information depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you’ve picked, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple large-size sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other web app and lower the load on your VPS server, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which confirms its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you purchase any of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached data caching platform as standard and you can set it up for each site that you host on your dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching content as people visit your site, so you will see the results of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server 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 a very heavy website without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will permit you to increase the load speed of any database-driven website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to boost the overall performance of your server.
