Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated load substantially. Every time a page on an application-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a certain page. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see old data. Memcached is an excellent option for every site that has lots of viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached object caching system with all cloud hosting offered by our company. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can enable with just a couple of clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for frequently visited sites with large-sized databases and a lot of visitors. In this way, you can boost the overall performance of any script-based Internet site hosted on our servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-powered site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things determine the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your info. You can select them independently, since one instance is not bound to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single resource-consuming site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its type, including those that are based on widely used Internet applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you obtain any of our dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform by default and you can enable it for each site that you host on your server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching content as people access your website, so you will see the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for numerous websites or for a very heavy site without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached platform will permit you to accelerate the speed of any database-driven Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to optimize the performance of your server.
