Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your website and lessen the produced load greatly. Anytime a page on an app-driven site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a given page. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for any Internet site that draws a lot of viewers, as it will make it load much faster and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

The Memcached content caching system is available as an optional upgrade with each web hosting plan that we offer and you’ll be able to begin using it as soon as you add it, since the PHP extension that it requires so as to perform correctly is already present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each shared hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A frequently visited Internet site with a large-size database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you would like to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any given point with a few clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the system memory. These things specify the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one frequently visited Internet site, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widespread software applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to enhance the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can set it up for any site that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching info as users open your Internet site, so you will notice the results of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for numerous Internet sites or for a very heavy website without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to enhance the loading speed of any database-driven Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your server.
