Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and lessen the generated server load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an application-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a specific webpage. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see outdated content. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for every site that entices many visitors, as it will make it open much faster and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every shared hosting account that we are offering and if you would like to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache data, so for plenty of websites (or for one frequently visited site), you’d better order more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any point. With the Memcached caching system, any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers will open faster than the speed of light.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can add it with just a few clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is ideal for any script-powered web app like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-made app, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two different features – how many websites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you run a traffic-intensive website with lots of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages offered by us when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the object caching platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The activation requires a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll notice the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost immediately. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache information depends on the particular VPS package that you have chosen, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several popular websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other script and lower the load on your virtual server, which will allow you to keep using the current VPS package rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a proof of its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated hosting services offered by our company and the only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on famous software applications – for example, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each dedicated machine is tied to a given amount of system memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the load speed of very busy sites significantly, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will begin storing info the moment it’s activated, so soon after that, you’ll notice the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the lowered load. Plenty of Internet sites use Memcached to improve their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
