Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your website and reduce the generated server load drastically. Every time a web page on an application-powered website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a specific page. When any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. Memcached is a perfect solution for any Internet site that lures a lot of visitors, since it will make it incredibly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your shared web hosting package with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed extension is already installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you own a frequently visited site with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-powered software application, you can use it for every website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-built app, etc. You can order the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things show the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a particular amount of system memory. You can use Memcached with any kind of site and both you and your site visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS

When you acquire a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the distributed memory caching platform comes with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage resource-requiring Internet sites, you’ll be able to boost their performance effortlessly and the lowered load on your Virtual Private Server will permit you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server plan rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be great. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven application, irrespective of whether you’ve written it yourself or you are using a ready-for-use one such as WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can increase the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-based app you’re using or how busy the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount increases seriously with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching content anytime somebody browses your website, so, once enough data has been cached, you will notice the reduced load on the dedicated server and the enhanced overall performance of your Internet site. The Memcached system is being used by many sites, including famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
