Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the performance of your website and decrease the generated load considerably. Every time a webpage on an app-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a particular webpage. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never see old content. Memcached is a perfect solution for any site that has plenty of visitors, as it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each web hosting package that we are offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache info, so for a lot of sites (or for one resource-hungry site), you’d better order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With the Memcached caching system, every script-based site hosted on our servers will open extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup requires several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to increase the loading speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on widely used web-based apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you acquire a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the platform is offered with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you have resource-requiring sites, you will be able to boost their overall performance with no effort and the reduced load on your server will enable you to keep your current VPS hosting package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store information depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can use Memcached with any database-powered web app, irrespective of whether you have developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on popular web-based apps – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-powered community site. Each dedicated server is tied to a different amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate the loading speed of extremely large websites noticeably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin caching content as soon as it is activated, so soon after that, you will detect the enhanced overall performance of your sites and the lowered server load. Numerous Internet sites use the Memcached system to increase their efficiency, among them popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
