Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and lessen the generated load tremendously. Anytime a web page on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a certain web page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. Memcached is an excellent option for any site that has lots of visitors, as it will make it blazing-fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached memory caching system with all cloud hosting plans offered by our company. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can enable with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first one shows the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for popular sites with large-size databases and a lot of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can boost the loading speed of every script-based Internet site hosted on our servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer and use its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the system memory. These things define the number of the sites that can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to store your content. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its type, including those based on widely used Internet apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to enhance the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available as standard with all VPS plans that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs to perform correctly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can start using the content caching platform as soon as your brand-new server is completely operational. The system memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the given plan, but even with the low-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the server at the same time and to reduce the load on the virtual machine even if you have data-rich script-based web portals with numerous visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom one, and you’ll detect the faster performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform as standard and you can set it up for any website that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing information as users open your Internet site, so you will see the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the platform for a lot of websites or for an extremely heavy site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to improve the speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
