Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced load tremendously. Every time a web page on an application-driven website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a specific web page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. Memcached is a perfect option for every website that entices numerous visitors, as it will make it truly fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

If you host script-powered websites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached caching system to your web hosting package with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the PHP extension needed for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you own a resource-absorbing website with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add Memcached to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting services that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things indicate how many websites can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your information. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one large-scale website, for example. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widespread software applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and lots of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS

If you get a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the distributed memory object caching platform is offered with all VPSs that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run resource-consuming Internet sites, you can optimize their overall performance without effort and the decreased load on your VPS server will enable you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache content depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be tremendous. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven app, regardless of whether you’ve built it on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this object caching system once your server is fully operational, without the need to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve picked, but as our servers are extremely powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be three gigabytes. This will permit you to improve the performance of very large sites without effort and you will observe the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database calls. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any database-driven web page, including those that are based on famous Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
