Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can boost the performance of your Internet site and reduce the created load significantly. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given webpage. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for every site that lures plenty of viewers, since it will make it extra-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a web hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your web hosting plan with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the PHP extension needed for it is already installed on our innovative cloud 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 websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you want. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you own a popular website with a lot of content, you may need more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with just a few clicks. The data caching platform is ideal for any script-based software application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made one, and depending on your needs, you will be able to select two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you have a frequently visited site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will boost the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better loading speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will get the Memcached content caching platform by default and you can activate it for any website that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching content as users open your site, so you will detect the effect of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for a large number of websites or for a very busy Internet site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to improve the loading speed of any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated server.
