Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the performance of your site and lessen the generated load immensely. Anytime a page on an app-powered website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date data. Memcached is a perfect option for any website that draws numerous viewers, since it will make it faster than light and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with every Linux shared hosting offered by us and you’ll be able to start using it the moment you add it, as the extension that it needs so as to work properly is pre-installed on our advanced cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic Internet site with a large database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you need to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The memory caching platform is perfect for any script-powered software application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made one, and based on your necessities, you will be able to select two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a popular website with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will optimize the overall performance of your websites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

When you purchase a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the distributed memory caching platform is available with all virtual machines that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage traffic-intensive sites, you will be able to increase their performance without effort and the reduced load on your VPS will permit you to keep using your current VPS package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache content depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can use Memcached with any database-powered application, no matter if you’ve set it up yourself or you’re using a ready-made one such as WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can optimize the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-based web application you rely on or how busy the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount rises significantly with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching data every time someone opens your website, so, as soon as enough information has been stored, you’ll detect the reduced load on your dedicated server and the optimized performance of your website. The Memcached caching system is used by plenty of sites, among them popular portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the caching system.
