Memcached is an object 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 application that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the created server load substantially. Anytime a page on an app-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a certain webpage. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The platform is an excellent solution for every website that entices lots of viewers, as it will make it blazing-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use Memcached with all cloud website hosting plans that we’re offering. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can get with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for busy sites with large-sized databases and lots of visitors. Thus, you can supercharge the overall performance of any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the caching platform’s activation requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much content can be cached, in other words – there are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is amazingly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to improve the loading speed of any script-powered website, including those based on widely used web-based apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform through the section with the very same name. The activation takes a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ to store information depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve chosen, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several heavy sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet application and lower the load on your virtual server, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with only a few clicks. You can improve the performance of any site, regardless of what script-based web application you rely on or how busy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount grows considerably with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching data each time somebody accesses your website, so, as soon as enough info has been stored, you’ll notice the lowered load on the server and the enhanced performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is being used by plenty of sites, among them popular portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
