Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and decrease the generated server load considerably. Every time a page on an app-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a specific page. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is an excellent solution for every Internet site that draws numerous visitors, since it will make it amazingly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux shared web hosting services that we’re offering. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can add with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first one determines the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for traffic-heavy sites with large-sized databases and numerous simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can increase the loading speed of any script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated services and since it works with any script-driven application, you can use it for any site that you host on our platform, no matter what app you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom-developed application, etc. You can request the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things specify how many websites will use the Memcached caching system and how much memory the system will be able to use in order to store your info. The two features are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and the site visitors will swiftly perceive the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with each virtual private server that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the power of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared hosting package. This will enable you to use Memcached for a lot of Internet sites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the VPS. The caching system is suitable for script-driven software apps like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you activate Memcached, it will start storing content and you will detect the optimized performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just several clicks. You can optimize the overall performance of any site, no matter what script-based software app you are using or how busy the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows substantially with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching info each time somebody opens your website, so, as soon as enough info has been stored, you will distinguish the lowered load on the dedicated server and the improved overall performance of the site. Memcached is used by many sites, including famous portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
