Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and decrease the created server load significantly. Every time a web page on an app-powered website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a certain web page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing outdated content. Memcached is an excellent option for any site that lures lots of viewers, since it will accelerate it and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with every shared plan that we’re offering and you can begin using it once you enable it, since the extension that it needs in order to function correctly is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each hosting plan and a new section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A frequently visited Internet site with a large database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you’d like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any time with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with just a few mouse clicks. The content caching platform is perfect for any script-powered web application like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made one, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two separate features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you have a traffic-consuming Internet site with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will enhance the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much faster loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with each VPS server that we’re offering on the condition that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the full potential of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you select, the more memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared web hosting plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for lots of Internet sites, regardless of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading your virtual machine. The caching system is suitable for script-based web apps like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing information and you will detect the optimized overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can enhance the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-based software app you’re using or how popular the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows seriously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching info each time someone opens your website, so, as soon as sufficient info has been stored, you’ll detect the decreased load on your dedicated server and the enhanced performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is used by lots of websites, including popular portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which proves the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
