Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and decrease the created server load immensely. Anytime a webpage on an app-powered Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a specific page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing old content. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for every Internet site that lures numerous viewers, as it will make it load faster and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated services that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the system memory. These things indicate how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your content. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a particular amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one large-scale Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widespread apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the object caching platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The setup takes a few clicks of the mouse and you’ll notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to cache info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve picked, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several intense-traffic websites. You can use Memcached with sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet app and decrease the load on your virtual machine, which will enable you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using this content caching system the moment your server is completely ready, without having to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are rather powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-demanding websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to boost the performance of very popular Internet sites with no effort and you will see the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database calls. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any database-powered web page, including those based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
