Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and lessen the produced server load immensely. Every time a page on an app-powered site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a certain webpage. If any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never see old data. Memcached is an ideal option for every Internet site that attracts numerous viewers, as it will make it blazing-fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can use Memcached with all Linux cloud packages that we are offering. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can order with only a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one shows the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for high-traffic sites with very large databases and many users. Thus, you can supercharge the loading speed of every script-based website hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a couple of clicks. The platform is ideal for any script-based software application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house built app, and based on your necessities, you will be able to select two separate features – how many sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a busy site with lots of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will boost the overall performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster load times.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the memory caching platform through the Control Panel section with the very same name. The setup takes a few clicks and you will detect the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the particular VPS package that you have chosen, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple traffic-hungry sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other application and reduce the load on your server, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which demonstrates its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this content caching system once your dedicated server is fully ready, without the need to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have picked, but as our servers are really powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-intensive Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to optimize the overall performance of very large Internet sites with no effort and you will notice the difference soon after the Memcached system starts caching database requests. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any database-driven online portal, including those based on popular CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
