Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your website and reduce the produced load tremendously. Anytime a page on an application-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a certain web page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old content. Memcached is an excellent option for any website that entices plenty of visitors, as it will accelerate it and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached caching system with all Linux shared website hosting service that we’re offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can order with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you wish to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a good idea for high-demand websites with very large databases and numerous concurrent visitors. Thus, you can improve the loading speed of every script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting service offered by our company and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things determine how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since one instance is not bound to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single traffic-intensive Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is offered 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 web apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we are offering when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The configuration requires several clicks of the mouse and you will see the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can employ to cache data depends on the given VPS package that you’ve selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several resource-requiring Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other web-based application and lower the load on your server, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which proves its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you order any of our Linux dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can set it up for each site that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching information as people open your site, so you’ll see the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the caching platform for multiple sites or for an extremely large site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to improve the load speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to enhance the performance of your server.
