Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and decrease the produced load tremendously. Every time a web page on an app-powered site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a given webpage. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for any website that attracts a lot of viewers, as it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your shared hosting package with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary extension is already installed on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a larger website with lots of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the caching platform’s activation takes several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there’re two different upgradable features – the instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to improve the loading speed of any script-powered site, including those based on famous Internet applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the data caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage popular Internet sites, you’ll be able to improve their overall performance without effort and the lowered load on your VPS will allow you to keep your current Virtual Private Server plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system 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 MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can use Memcached with any database-driven app, regardless of whether you’ve built it on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one like Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated service offered by us and the one and only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on popular web apps – for instance, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated server is tied to a specific amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to increase the load speed of very popular websites tremendously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start storing information as soon as it’s activated, so soon thereafter, you will see the improved overall performance of your sites and the reduced load on your dedicated machine. Many sites use Memcached to boost their effectiveness, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
