Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your site and reduce the generated server load considerably. Every time a webpage on an app-driven website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, 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 given page. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never see old content. The platform is an excellent choice for every Internet site that has numerous viewers, since it will accelerate it and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting plans offered by us. It is available as an upgrade, which you can get with just a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first one determines the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-demand websites with large-size databases and plenty of visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the performance of any script-based Internet site hosted on our servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with only a couple of mouse clicks. The data caching platform is ideal for any script-based software application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-built app, and depending on your demands, you will be able to select two separate features – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you manage a frequently visited site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will accelerate the performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages offered by our company when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform via the section with the exact same name. The activation requires several clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ to cache information depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you have picked, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several regularly visited Internet sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other application and lower the load on your virtual server, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which verifies its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers that we are offering and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on widely used web applications – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-driven social network. Each dedicated machine is tied to a different amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the loading speed of very busy websites considerably, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start storing information as soon as it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll detect the optimized overall performance of your websites and the lowered load on your server. Plenty of websites use the Memcached caching system to increase their efficiency, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
