Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and reduce the generated load greatly. Anytime a page on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a specific webpage. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never end up seeing old content. The platform is an ideal choice for any Internet site that draws many viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each shared hosting account offered by us and if you’d like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache information, so for a lot of sites (or for one single popular site), you should order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will open amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting service offered by our company and make use of its full potential for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your information. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not bound to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one resource-requiring Internet site, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widely used software apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and lots of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to enhance the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with every VPS server offered by our company on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra money to be able to use the power of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you select, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for many Internet sites, irrespective of how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading your virtual server. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-powered applications like OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will begin storing data and you’ll distinguish the improved overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with just several mouse clicks. You can increase the performance of any site, irrespective of what script-powered software application you rely on or how large the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows substantially with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching info each time someone opens your site, so, once sufficient content has been stored, you’ll distinguish the reduced load on the dedicated server and the improved performance of your website. The Memcached system is being used by many sites, including famous portals like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is an evidence of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
