Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced server load greatly. Anytime a page on an app-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see old data. Memcached is an ideal option for every website that draws a lot of viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every website hosting plan that we are offering and if you wish to use it for any script-based site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache data, so for lots of sites (or for one large site), you should get more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any point. With the Memcached caching system, each script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and use its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use Memcached and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your info. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one regularly visited Internet site, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular software apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you purchase a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the memory caching platform is offered with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage data-loaded Internet sites, you’ll be able to boost their performance without effort and the reduced load on your virtual machine will enable you to keep your current plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered web app, irrespective of whether you have developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-made one like OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this memory caching system the moment your server is fully ready, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have picked, but as our servers are pretty powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-hungry Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to improve the overall performance of very heavy websites with no effort and you’ll detect the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database calls. You can make full use of the caching system with any database-driven online portal, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
