Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can enhance the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced load tremendously. Anytime a page on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a specific webpage. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never see outdated data. Memcached is an ideal choice for every site that has a lot of visitors, as it will make it faster than light and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host script-powered sites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your hosting package with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the necessary extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you’ve got a large-sized website with lots of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with only a couple of clicks. The platform is perfect for any script-driven software app like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made one, and depending on your needs, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you manage a high-demand site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will improve the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you obtain a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the memory caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage resource-intensive websites, you will be able to increase their performance without any effort and the reduced load on your VPS server will permit you to keep using your current VPS plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache info depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, regardless of whether you have developed it on your own or you’re using a ready-made one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by us in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only a couple of clicks. You can optimize the performance of any site, regardless of what script-powered web application you are using or how busy the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount increases seriously with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching information each time someone browses your website, so, as soon as enough data has been cached, you will detect the lowered load and the enhanced performance of the site. The Memcached system is used by numerous sites, among them famous portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
