Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, 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 uses it, which can improve the performance of your site and decrease the created load considerably. Every time a webpage on an application-powered site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a certain webpage. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see old content. Memcached is an ideal solution for every Internet site that draws a lot of viewers, as it will make it lightning-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

If you host script-powered sites in a shared hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add Memcached to your hosting plan with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a large-scale site with lots of content, you may need more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer and use its full potential for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things indicate how many sites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your information. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-requiring Internet site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on popular software apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and plenty of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the performance of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you purchase any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform by default and you can use it with each Internet site that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start caching information as users open your website, so you will notice the results of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system 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 take advantage of the platform for a large number of sites or for a very busy website without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached platform will permit you to speed up any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated server.
