Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and decrease the created server load immensely. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a specific webpage. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. Memcached is a perfect solution for every Internet site that has a lot of visitors, since it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting offered by us. It is available as an upgrade, which you can obtain with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first part defines the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for frequently visited websites with very large databases and plenty of simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can enhance the performance of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached data caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-powered software application, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our platform, regardless of what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-developed application, etc. You can request the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things indicate the number of the websites that will use Memcached and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to store your information. The two features are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of memory. You can use the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and your website visitors will swiftly note the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached comes by default with every virtual private server offered by our company as long as you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to use the full potential of this caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will allow you to use Memcached for a lot of sites, regardless of how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading your VPS. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-driven software apps like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will start caching content and you will spot the improved performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with only a couple of clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any site, regardless of what script-driven web application you are using or how popular the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount rises tremendously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will begin caching data each time someone visits your site, so, as soon as sufficient content has been cached, you’ll notice the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the optimized overall performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by plenty of sites, among them famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which confirms the efficiency of the caching system.
