Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and reduce the generated server load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an application-powered Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a particular web page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is an excellent option for every website that attracts lots of viewers, since it will boost its speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your plan with only a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the extension required for it is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right 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 system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you wish. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you have a resource-absorbing website with lots of data, you may need more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with only a couple of clicks. The object caching platform is perfect for any script-based web app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a tailor-made app, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you own a traffic-hungry Internet site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will accelerate the overall performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with every VPS server that we offer on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the potential of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared hosting plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for a lot of websites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The Memcached caching system is excellent for script-powered applications like Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will begin caching data and you will note the optimized performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can accelerate the overall performance of any site, no matter what script-powered app you’re using or how popular the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount grows enormously with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching info anytime someone browses your website, so, as soon as sufficient data has been cached, you will notice the lowered load on the server and the improved performance of the Internet site. Memcached is being used by numerous sites, including famous portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which verifies the efficiency of the caching system.
