Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your site and lessen the created server load drastically. Every time a webpage on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a certain page. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for any website that draws lots of visitors, since it will make it astonishingly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is offered as an upgrade with every Linux cloud hosting offered by our company and you’ll be able to start using it the moment you activate it, since the extension that it needs in order to work correctly is already available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each shared hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A popular website with a large-size database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you wish to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any given point with a few mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, since the caching platform’s setup requires several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much information can be cached, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to increase the speed of any script-driven site, including those based on famous web-based apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans that we’re offering when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the data caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The activation requires several clicks and you’ll notice the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve chosen, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several high-demand sites. You can use Memcached with websites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other software application and decrease the load on your VPS, which will allow you to keep using the current package rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which shows its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated service that we are offering and the only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on widely used software apps – for instance, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven social network. Each dedicated machine is tied to a particular amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to optimize the load speed of very large sites immensely, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start storing content the moment it’s enabled, so soon after that, you’ll observe the enhanced performance of your Internet sites and the decreased server load. Numerous Internet sites use the Memcached system to improve their effectiveness, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
