Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your site and decrease the created server load greatly. Every time a page on an application-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a particular web page. If any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for any site that attracts many visitors, as it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached caching system to your hosting package with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the necessary extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available 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 data it will cache, so if you’ve got a resource-intensive website with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based web application, you can use it for any website that you host on our servers, regardless of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-built app, etc. You can order the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things indicate the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system and how much system memory the system will be able to use in order to cache your content. The two features are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and your visitors will quickly perceive the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform via the section with the exact same name. The activation takes a few clicks of the mouse and you will distinguish the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that Memcached can take advantage of to cache data depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you have chosen, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple heavy Internet sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other web app and lower the load on your virtual machine, which will enable you to keep using the current plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated web hosting offered by our company and the sole requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on popular apps – for example, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each dedicated server comes with a different amount of system memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to enhance the loading speed of extremely large sites considerably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will begin storing info the moment it is enabled, so soon after that, you will observe the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on your dedicated server. A lot of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to increase their efficiency, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
