Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the created server load substantially. Anytime a page on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since 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 ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for any Internet site that entices a lot of visitors, since it will make it open much faster and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

When you host script-based sites in a hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your web hosting plan with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary PHP extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you want. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a popular website with lots of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-powered software app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our platform, no matter what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-created one, etc. You can request the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things define the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two features are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and the site visitors will swiftly detect the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with each VPS server offered by our company as long as you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the maximum capacity of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server package you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared web hosting package. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for plenty of websites, irrespective of how popular they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading your Virtual Private Server. The caching system is ideal for script-powered apps like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Soon after you enable the Memcached system, it will begin caching data and you will detect the optimized overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with just several clicks of the mouse. You can improve the performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-based software application you are using or how large the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount increases immensely with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will begin caching content anytime somebody accesses your website, so, as soon as enough information has been cached, you’ll perceive the reduced load on the dedicated server and the optimized performance of your Internet site. Memcached is being used by plenty of websites, including famous portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
