Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can boost the performance of your website and reduce the created load significantly. Anytime a page on an application-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a particular webpage. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is a perfect choice for any Internet site that has plenty of visitors, as it will make it truly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached caching system is available as an upgrade with each Linux shared hosting offered by our company and you can begin using it as soon as you activate it, since the PHP extension that it requires in order to perform correctly is already installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with every hosting plan and a new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-intensive site with a very large database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so in case you want to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add Memcached to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by us and use its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things indicate how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your data. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-heavy Internet site, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widespread apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached comes by default with every virtual private server that we are offering on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay anything extra to be able to use the maximum potential of this data caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package. This will permit you to use Memcached for a lot of sites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading the server. The Memcached caching system is excellent for script-driven apps like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached system, it will begin storing data and you will spot the improved overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the caching system the moment the server is fully functional, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you have chosen, but since our servers are astonishingly powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-consuming sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to improve the overall performance of very busy websites without efforts and you’ll see the difference soon after the Memcached system starts caching database calls. You can make the most of the caching system with any database-powered portal, including those that are based on famous Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
