Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and reduce the created load considerably. Every time a webpage on an app-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a certain page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see outdated content. The platform is a perfect option for any site that entices a lot of viewers, as it will make it truly fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting plan that we’re offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache info, so for numerous websites (or for one resource-absorbing site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will open blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-powered web application, you can use it for any site that you host on our platform, regardless of what app you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom app, etc. You can add the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things specify how many sites will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache your data. The two things are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of memory. You can use the Memcached system with any sort of site and both you and your site visitors will quickly detect the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages that we offer when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the content caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The configuration takes a few mouse clicks and you will distinguish the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ to store content depends on the given Virtual Private Server package that you have chosen, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple traffic-consuming websites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other software app and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will enable you to keep using the current VPS package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which shows its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

When you acquire any of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached object caching platform as standard and you can activate it for each site that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching data as users open your Internet site, so you will detect the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for many websites or for a very large site without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to accelerate the speed of any database-driven Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your server.
