Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the performance of your site and lessen the produced server load substantially. Anytime a web page on an application-driven website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a particular page. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is a perfect choice for every website that draws many viewers, since it will make it truly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a shared hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your web hosting package with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it right 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 is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you own a large website with a lot of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting service and since it works with any script-driven web application, you can use it for each website that you host on our servers, irrespective of what app you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-created one, etc. You can order the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two different features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things show the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached system and how much memory the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two things are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any kind of site and both you and your website visitors will swiftly detect the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you buy a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the memory caching platform comes with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage traffic-consuming sites, you can boost their overall performance effortlessly and the lowered load will enable you to keep your current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store data depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have no less than several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, regardless of whether you have written it on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with just a couple of clicks. You can accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-based software application you rely on or how busy the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows seriously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will start caching info anytime somebody opens your website, so, as soon as enough content has been stored, you’ll detect the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the enhanced performance of the Internet site. Memcached is used by lots of sites, among them popular portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the caching system.
