Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the performance of your Internet site and decrease the generated load substantially. Every time a web page on an application-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a particular web page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see old content. Memcached is a perfect choice for any website that attracts lots of visitors, as it will make it incredibly fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a shared website hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your hosting plan with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the needed PHP extension is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can start using it right 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 Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you run a resource-consuming website with a lot of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-driven software app, you can use it for every website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-built app, etc. You can add the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things determine how many Internet sites will use the Memcached system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your data. The two things are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any sort of site and both you and your website visitors will swiftly spot the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with each VPS server offered by us on the condition that you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the full capacity of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server package you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared package. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for many websites, no matter how popular they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The caching system is suitable for script-driven software applications like OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will begin caching data and you will distinguish the enhanced overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with only several clicks of the mouse. You can improve the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-driven web application you rely on or how large the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises considerably with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching data every time somebody opens your site, so, as soon as enough information has been stored, you will distinguish the reduced server load and the optimized overall performance of the website. Memcached is used by lots of sites, including famous portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a confirmation of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
