Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and lessen the produced server load immensely. Every time a web page on an app-powered site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a certain webpage. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old content. Memcached is an ideal solution for every website that lures a lot of viewers, as it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a shared website hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached object caching system to your plan with just a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the extension needed for it is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you need. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a high-traffic site with lots 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

In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the caching platform’s setup takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much info can be cached, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to boost the loading speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on popular software 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 data caching platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you have data-loaded sites, you can boost their performance without any effort and the lowered load on the VPS will permit you to keep using your current VPS hosting package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache content depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered app, no matter if you have set it up yourself or you are using a ready-made one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can optimize the overall performance of any website, no matter what script-powered web application you rely on or how heavy the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount increases seriously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching info each time somebody accesses your website, so, once enough information has been stored, you will notice the reduced load on the dedicated machine and the optimized performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by many websites, among them famous portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
