Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the created load immensely. Anytime a web page on an app-driven website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a particular webpage. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing old data. The platform is an ideal solution for every site that attracts many viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting plan offered by our company and in case you want to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache info, so for a lot of websites (or for one traffic-heavy site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered site hosted on our servers will load extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with only a few mouse clicks. The platform is ideal for any script-based web app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made one, and based on your demands, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you manage a traffic-consuming Internet site with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the overall performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs so as to perform correctly is compiled when the virtual server is configured, so you can start using the content caching platform once your new Virtual Private Server is fully functional. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the given plan, but even with the low-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will allow you to boost the performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS simultaneously and to decrease the load on the virtual machine even if you have data-rich script-driven web portals with a lot of users. The caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-developed script, and you’ll notice the better overall performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated hosting services offered by us and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on widely used software apps – for instance, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated machine comes with a particular amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the loading speed of extremely busy sites considerably, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin storing content once it’s enabled, so shortly after that, you’ll note the optimized performance of your websites and the lowered load on your dedicated server. Plenty of Internet sites use Memcached to increase their efficacy, including famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
