Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and decrease the created server load greatly. Every time a web page on an app-driven website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a particular page. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is an excellent choice for any site that entices plenty of visitors, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached content caching system with all shared web hosting services that we offer. It is available as an upgrade, which you can order with only a few clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part defines the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large databases and a lot of simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can optimize the speed of any script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the object caching platform’s setup requires a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much data it will cache, i.e. there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to boost the loading speed of any script-powered site, including those that are based on famous applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and you will distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of memory that Memcached can take advantage of to store data depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve selected, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several resource-intensive sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other application and decrease the load on your VPS server, which will allow you to continue using the current package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which proves its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated web hosting that we offer and the sole condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on popular software applications – for example, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each server comes with a specific amount of system memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to enhance the load speed of extremely large sites seriously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will start storing info the moment it’s activated, so shortly after that, you’ll notice the improved performance of your sites and the decreased load on your server. Many sites use the Memcached caching system to improve their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
