Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated server load greatly. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a particular page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. Memcached is an excellent solution for every Internet site that draws a lot of viewers, as it will make it lightning-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-driven websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add Memcached to your shared hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required PHP extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can start using it straight 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 the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you like. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you have a resource-demanding site with a lot of data, you may require more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the memory caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much information can be cached, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is amazingly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to speed up any script-powered website, including those that are based on popular web-based apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS

When you get a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the memory caching platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have resource-heavy websites, you’ll be able to improve their performance without efforts and the lowered load on your virtual machine will allow you to keep your current package rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache content depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered web app, regardless of whether you’ve developed it yourself or you are using a ready-for-use one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with just a few clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-based web app you’re using or how popular the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases considerably with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will begin caching data each time somebody opens your website, so, once enough content has been stored, you will detect the decreased load on the dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of your website. Memcached is used by numerous sites, among them popular portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which shows the effectiveness of the caching system.
