Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the performance of your website and reduce the created server load substantially. Anytime a web page on an app-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a particular webpage. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is an ideal option for every site that has many visitors, as it will make it blazing-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use Memcached with all cloud web hosting offered by our company. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can obtain with just a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for busy sites with large-size databases and many simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can boost the speed of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers effortlessly.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can add it with just a couple of clicks. The data caching platform is ideal for any script-powered software app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-built one, and based on your requirements, you will be able to choose two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you run a traffic-intensive site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the performance of your sites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy better loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the distributed memory caching platform comes with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run data-loaded Internet sites, you will be able to improve their performance with ease and the lowered load on the server will enable you to keep your current VPS hosting package rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven application, regardless of whether you have written it yourself or you are using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on popular software applications – for example, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-driven community website. Each server comes with a specific amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to optimize the load speed of very large sites substantially, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin caching information the moment it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll notice the optimized performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on the dedicated server. Many Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their effectiveness, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
