Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your site and reduce the generated load substantially. Anytime a web page on an app-driven website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a particular web page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never end up seeing old content. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for any site that has numerous visitors, as it will make it faster than light and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with every Linux cloud website hosting service offered by us and you’ll be able to begin using it once you enable it, as the PHP extension that it needs in order to perform correctly is already present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every hosting package and a new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the total size of the content that the system can cache. A popular website with a large database may need more memory to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you’d like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any point with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and use its full potential for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to store your info. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not tied to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one resource-requiring site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widely used web applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is available as standard with all VPS services that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs so as to work correctly is compiled when the virtual server is configured, so you can begin using the data caching platform as soon as your new virtual server is fully ready. The system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the low-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will allow you to optimize the performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS at the same time and to reduce the load even if you run resource-heavy script-powered web pages with lots of visitors. The platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-developed script, and you will notice the faster overall performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

When you get any of our dedicated hosting services and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached data caching platform by default and you can set it up for any site that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing content as people visit your Internet site, so you’ll notice the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for multiple sites or for a very popular Internet site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will allow you to optimize the speed of any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart store, etc., and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
