Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced load considerably. Anytime a web page on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a particular page. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for any website that entices numerous visitors, since it will make it astonishingly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux cloud packages that we’re offering. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with only a couple of clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for regularly visited websites with large-sized databases and lots of users. Thus, you can enhance the performance of any script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get Memcached as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and since it works with any script-driven software app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our servers, no matter what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-created application, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things define how many Internet sites will use Memcached and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your information. The two features are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can take full advantage of Memcached with any sort of website and both you and your visitors will quickly notice the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages that we are offering when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The activation takes a few clicks of the mouse and you will see the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store data depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you have picked, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple regularly visited Internet sites. You can use Memcached with sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other software application and lower the load on your VPS, which will allow you to continue using the current plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is an evidence of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by our company and the only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous software applications – for instance, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered community site. Each dedicated server is tied to a particular amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to improve the loading speed of extremely large websites enormously, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin caching data as soon as it’s activated, so shortly after that, you’ll see the enhanced performance of your websites and the lowered load on the server. A lot of websites use the Memcached caching system to improve their efficiency, including popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
