Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can boost the performance of your site and reduce the generated load significantly. Anytime a web page on an application-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a certain web page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never see out-of-date data. Memcached is an excellent option for every website that draws numerous viewers, since it will make it load faster and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every shared website hosting package that we are offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache content, so for numerous websites (or for one resource-intensive site), you should order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, each script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will open much faster.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with only a couple of clicks. The object caching platform is perfect for any script-driven app like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made app, and depending on your needs, you will be able to select two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you run a traffic-hungry site with lots 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 sites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the object caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup takes a few mouse clicks and you’ll see the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache information depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-hungry sites. You can use Memcached with websites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other web app and decrease the load on your virtual server, which will enable you to keep using the current plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which confirms its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated hosting offered by us and the sole requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on famous Internet applications – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-driven community website. Each server is tied to a given amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate the speed of very popular sites enormously, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start caching content the moment it is enabled, so shortly after that, you’ll see the improved overall performance of your websites and the decreased load on your dedicated machine. Numerous Internet sites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficacy, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
