Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced load greatly. Every time a webpage on an application-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a certain web page. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see old content. The platform is a perfect solution for every Internet site that draws numerous visitors, as it will make it faster than light and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

When you host script-powered sites in a hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached caching system to your shared web hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the extension required for it is already installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you own a resource-intensive website with lots of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans that we’re offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things define how many sites can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to store your data. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single resource-heavy Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its nature, including those based on widely used software applications like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to optimize the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with every VPS server that we offer as long as you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra money to be able to take advantage of the full potential of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for multiple websites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading your VPS. The caching system is ideal for script-powered applications like OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Soon after you enable the Memcached system, it will begin caching data and you’ll detect the enhanced performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you obtain any of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will get the Memcached platform by default and you can enable it for any Internet site that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing information as people visit your site, so you’ll see the effect of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for multiple sites or for an extremely heavy Internet site without compromising its efficiency. Memcached will permit you to accelerate any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your server.
