Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and reduce the created load considerably. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a specific web page. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for every site that has a lot of viewers, since it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each shared website hosting offered by our company and you can begin using it as soon as you order it, as the PHP extension that it needs so as to work properly is already available on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with every hosting package and a new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, determines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A popular Internet site with a large database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you want to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with a couple of clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you purchase any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. The content caching platform is ideal for any script-driven web app like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made one, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you own a high-demand website with lots of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available as standard with all VPS servers ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs in order to perform properly is compiled when the VPS server is configured, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching platform as soon as your brand-new virtual server is fully ready. The system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will allow you to increase the performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS at the same time and to lower the load on the machine even if you own busy script-driven sites with lots of users. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom-made one, and you’ll distinguish the faster performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you buy one of our dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you’ll get the Memcached data caching platform by default and you can use it with each Internet site that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing information as users access your Internet site, so you will notice the effect of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the caching platform for multiple websites or for an extremely heavy Internet site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached platform will allow you to boost the speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
