Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can boost the performance of your site and reduce the created server load considerably. Every time a web page on an app-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a particular page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing outdated data. The platform is an ideal choice for every website that attracts plenty of viewers, since it will make it super-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

When you host script-based sites in a website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached caching system to your shared web hosting plan with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a traffic-intensive website with a lot of content, you may need more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and use its full potential for any script-powered site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the amount of memory. These things indicate how many sites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your information. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single resource-requiring Internet site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those that are based on popular software applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with each VPS server offered by us on the condition that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the potential of this data caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for many sites, regardless of how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading the VPS. The caching system is excellent for script-powered web applications such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will begin caching information and you’ll distinguish the improved performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company and the only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on famous web apps – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each server is tied to a particular amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the load speed of extremely busy websites immensely, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start storing info the moment it’s activated, so soon thereafter, you will detect the enhanced performance of your websites and the decreased load. Numerous sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their efficiency, including famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
