Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your website and decrease the produced server load tremendously. Anytime a page on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a particular webpage. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. Memcached is an ideal choice for any Internet site that lures many viewers, as it will speed it up and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each web hosting plan offered by our company and in case you want to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to enable it in several simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache information, so for lots of sites (or for one large-scale site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers will load amazingly fast.

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 effortlessly, since the memory caching platform’s setup takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much info it will cache, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to increase the speed of any script-driven website, including those that are based on popular web-based apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is offered by default with every virtual private server that we are offering provided that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra money to be able to use the full capacity of this object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared hosting package. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for multiple Internet sites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading the virtual machine. The caching system is suitable for script-driven web apps such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will begin caching information and you will note the enhanced performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with just several clicks. You can increase the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-driven software application you rely on or how large the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount grows tremendously with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching info every time somebody accesses your website, so, as soon as sufficient content has been stored, you’ll perceive the reduced load on your dedicated server and the optimized performance of your website. Memcached is being used by many sites, including famous portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
