Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated load considerably. Anytime a page on an application-powered site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a certain web page. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for every site that entices many visitors, since it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your shared hosting plan with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a popular site with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup requires a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to speed up any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous software applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The activation requires a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to store data depends on the particular VPS package that you have selected, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-intensive Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based app and decrease the load on your server, which will allow you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which confirms its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by us and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on popular software apps – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven social network. Each server is tied to a different amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to improve the load speed of very heavy sites greatly, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will begin storing info once it is enabled, so soon thereafter, you will notice the optimized overall performance of your sites and the decreased load on the dedicated machine. A lot of websites use the Memcached system to improve their efficacy, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
