Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated load immensely. Every time a webpage on an app-powered website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a certain page. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for any site that entices a lot of viewers, since it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each and every website hosting plan offered by our company and you will be able to begin using it once you activate it, as the extension that it needs so as to function correctly is already available on our avant-garde cloud platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each shared hosting plan and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A busy Internet site with a large database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you want to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with several clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans offered by us and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven website 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 determine the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your info. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one large-size Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those based on popular Internet apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with each VPS server offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the full capacity of this data caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for lots of websites, regardless of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading your VPS. The caching system is excellent for script-driven web applications such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will begin caching content and you will detect the improved overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this content caching system the moment your dedicated server is completely ready, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve picked, but as our servers are astonishingly powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-hungry websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of very large sites effortlessly and you’ll detect the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database calls. You can make the most of the caching system with any database-driven web portal, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
