Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and decrease the created load immensely. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a certain webpage. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The platform is an excellent option for every website that entices a lot of viewers, as it will make it open faster and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting plan that we’re offering and if you would like to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to add it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache info, so for lots of sites (or for one resource-absorbing site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With the Memcached caching system, any script-powered site hosted on our servers will open extra-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated packages that we’re offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate the number of the sites that can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to store your information. You can select them separately, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large-size website, for instance. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widespread Internet applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the object caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The setup requires a couple of clicks of the mouse and you’ll distinguish the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost immediately. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several frequently visited sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet app and decrease the load on your virtual machine, which will allow you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server plan instead of moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is an evidence of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this caching system the moment the dedicated server is ready, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are pretty powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-consuming sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will permit you to accelerate the overall performance of very large Internet sites without efforts and you will detect the difference soon after the Memcached caching system starts caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered website, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
