Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the performance of your site and lessen the produced server load considerably. Anytime a page on an app-driven site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a certain web page. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for every site that entices a lot of viewers, as it will increase its speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting account offered by us and if you want to use it for any script-based site that you host on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in several easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache info, so for multiple websites (or for one popular site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The memory caching platform is perfect for any script-based app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built application, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to choose two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a traffic-heavy site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will increase the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you purchase a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the content caching platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you have content-heavy websites, you will be able to enhance their overall performance without efforts and the decreased load on your server will enable you to keep using your current VPS hosting plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be tremendous. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, no matter if you’ve built it yourself or you’re using a ready-made one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can optimize the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-driven web app you’re using or how busy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases significantly with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will start caching content every time somebody visits your website, so, as soon as enough info has been stored, you’ll distinguish the lowered load and the improved performance of the Internet site. Memcached is used by lots of sites, among them popular portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which confirms the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
