Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can boost the performance of your site and lessen the created load greatly. Every time a page on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a specific page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never see old data. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for every Internet site that lures many viewers, since it will increase its loading speed and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux web hosting that we are offering. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first part reveals the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large-size databases and lots of simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can enhance the overall performance of any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the platform’s setup requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much data it will cache, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to increase the loading speed of any script-powered website, including those based on popular software apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS

When you get a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run resource-hungry sites, you can improve their performance with no effort and the reduced load on your VPS will allow you to continue using your current VPS plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store information depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will get at least several hundred MB, 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 enormous. You can use Memcached with any database-driven application, irrespective of whether you have set it up on your own or you are using a ready-made one like Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated hosting services that we offer and the sole condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on famous software applications – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-powered community web portal. Each dedicated machine is tied to a particular amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to increase the load speed of very large websites greatly, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will start storing information the moment it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll note the optimized overall performance of your websites and the lowered load. Many sites use Memcached to improve their efficacy, among them popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
