Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and lessen the created load drastically. Every time a page on an app-powered site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a given page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing old content. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for every Internet site that has a lot of visitors, as it will make it open much faster and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-based sites in a shared hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your shared hosting package with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the necessary PHP extension is already installed on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you own a traffic-consuming site with lots of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and use its full potential for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your info. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not bound to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single resource-heavy Internet site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its nature, including those based on widespread Internet applications like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages offered by us when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the content caching platform through the Control Panel section with the very same name. The activation takes a few clicks of the mouse and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to cache information depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have chosen, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several data-loaded sites. You can use Memcached with websites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other application and lower the load on your VPS, which will allow you to continue using the current package rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which proves its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated web hosting offered by us and the sole condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on famous Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each dedicated server is tied to a different amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the loading speed of extremely busy sites seriously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will begin caching information as soon as it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll note the improved overall performance of your websites and the decreased load on your server. Numerous websites use the Memcached caching system to improve their effectiveness, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
