Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and reduce the generated load considerably. Anytime a web page on an app-powered 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 particular page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see old content. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for any site that draws lots of viewers, since it will make it really fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a website hosting account with our company, you can add Memcached to your hosting package with just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our advanced cloud hosting 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 MB and you can add memory whenever you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a traffic-intensive website with lots of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate how many websites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your content. You can select them independently, since one instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-heavy site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those based on widespread web-based apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with each and every VPS server offered by our company as long as you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the potential of this object caching system. The more powerful package you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for many websites, no matter how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading your VPS server. The caching system is ideal for script-driven applications like Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will begin caching content and you’ll see the improved overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching system once the server is completely operational, without the need to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you have selected, but since our servers are pretty powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-consuming Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to enhance the overall performance of extremely heavy websites effortlessly and you will detect the difference shortly after the Memcached system starts caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any database-driven portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
