Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced load significantly. Every time a web page on an app-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a specific web page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never see out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for every website that attracts a lot of visitors, since it will make it blazing-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared web hosting package with just a couple of clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed extension is already installed on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a resource-intensive website with lots of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make full use 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 semi-dedicated servers offered by our company and use its full potential for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the amount of memory. These things specify how many sites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to store your content. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not tied to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single resource-intensive Internet site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widely used software apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to enhance the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available by default with all VPS servers ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs so as to work correctly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can begin using the object caching platform as soon as your brand-new Virtual Private Server is up and running. The system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the particular plan, but even with the low-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to improve the performance of multiple sites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to lower the load on the virtual machine even if you manage content-rich script-powered web portals with plenty of users. The caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom-made script, and you’ll detect the faster performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you order one of our dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached object caching platform as standard and you can use it with each website that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching content as users access your site, so you’ll notice the results of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for many Internet sites or for a very popular site without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached platform will allow you to increase the speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
