Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated load substantially. Every time a page on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a particular webpage. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data. Memcached is an excellent solution for every website that has numerous viewers, as it will make it lightning-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

You can use the Memcached caching system with all hosting offered by our company. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can obtain with just a few clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for traffic-intensive websites with very large databases and lots of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can accelerate the overall performance of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your account, you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. The caching platform is ideal for any script-based web app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed application, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you own a traffic-hungry website with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the overall performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached comes as standard with all Linux VPS hosting ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs to function correctly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can start using the object caching platform the moment your brand-new server is fully ready. The memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will allow you to boost the performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS server simultaneously and to reduce the load even if you own large-scale script-powered websites with numerous users. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom-made one, and you’ll notice the faster performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can increase the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-powered software app you rely on or how busy the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows immensely with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will start caching information every time somebody opens your website, so, as soon as enough content has been cached, you will see the decreased load on the dedicated machine and the improved overall performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is being used by a lot of sites, among them famous portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms the effectiveness of the caching system.
