Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your site and decrease the created load drastically. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a certain page. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for any site that entices many visitors, since it will accelerate it and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached content caching system with all Linux website hosting offered by us. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can get with just a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for busy sites with large-size databases and lots of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can enhance the overall performance of every script-based website hosted on our servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add Memcached to any of the semi-dedicated services offered by our company and make use of its full potential for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your content. You can select them separately, since one instance is not linked to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one traffic-heavy website, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those based on popular web applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and plenty of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The configuration requires a few clicks and you will detect the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store information depends on the particular VPS hosting package that you’ve selected, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple data-heavy sites. You can use Memcached with sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet application and lower the load on your VPS, which will allow you to keep using the current VPS plan instead of switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated web hosting offered by us and the one and only requirement is that the server 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 applications – for instance, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered community web portal. Each server is tied to a different amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to accelerate the speed of extremely busy sites substantially, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will start storing data once it’s enabled, so shortly after that, you will distinguish the improved overall performance of your websites and the lowered load. Many sites use Memcached to increase their effectiveness, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
