Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced load immensely. Anytime a page on an application-driven website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a given web page. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is a perfect choice for any website that entices numerous visitors, as it will make it blazing-fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

When you host script-powered sites in a shared web hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your shared web hosting plan with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a larger site with a lot of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get Memcached as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated plans and since it works with any script-powered software application, you can use it for any Internet site that you host on our platform, no matter what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-built application, etc. You can request the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In other words, these things determine the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your data. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of memory. You can use the Memcached system with any sort of site and both you and the website visitors will quickly spot the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the data caching platform comes with all VPSs that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got frequently visited websites, you’ll be able to improve their performance without effort and the reduced load on the virtual machine will enable you to continue using your current VPS plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, regardless of whether you have built it on your own or you are using a ready-to-use one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just a few mouse clicks. You can optimize the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-powered software application you’re using or how large the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases seriously with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching information each time someone visits your website, so, as soon as enough data has been cached, you will notice the reduced load and the improved overall performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is used by many sites, including popular portals like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is an evidence of the efficiency of the caching system.
