Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and lessen the generated load considerably. Anytime a page on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, 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 all of the content that should appear on a specific page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never see outdated content. Memcached is an excellent solution for every Internet site that attracts a lot of visitors, since it will make it faster than light and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host script-powered sites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you can add Memcached to your hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the extension required for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a traffic-hungry website with lots of data, you may require more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to store your content. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not linked to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single traffic-heavy website, for example. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular web-based applications like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS

If you order a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the object caching platform comes with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run resource-demanding Internet sites, you will be able to increase their overall performance without any effort and the reduced load on the virtual machine will enable you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to store info depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered web application, irrespective of whether you have developed it on your own or you are using a ready-made one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the data caching system once your dedicated server is completely operational, without having to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have selected, but as our servers are astonishingly powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will permit you to boost the performance of extremely large websites without efforts and you’ll note the difference soon after the Memcached caching system starts caching database calls. You can take advantage of the system with any database-driven web portal, including those based on famous CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
