Memcached is a distributed memory 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 app that uses it, which can improve the performance of your website and lessen the produced load immensely. Every time a page on an app-powered Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a specific webpage. If any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing old data. The platform is a perfect choice for every site that draws numerous viewers, as it will make it blazing-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your shared hosting package with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary PHP extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you own a high-traffic site with a lot of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with just a few clicks. The data caching platform is ideal for any script-driven web app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom one, and based on your necessities, you will be able to select two different things – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you own a frequently visited site with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will increase the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS web hosting ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires so as to work correctly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can begin using the distributed memory caching platform as soon as your brand-new VPS server is fully functional. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the low-end ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to improve the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the server simultaneously and to reduce the load on the machine even if you own resource-intensive script-powered web portals with numerous visitors. The platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-made one, and you will detect the faster performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting offered by our company and the only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on popular web-based applications – for example, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each server is tied to a certain amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the loading speed of extremely popular websites tremendously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will start storing information once it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll distinguish the improved overall performance of your websites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. A lot of websites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficiency, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
