Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and lessen the created server load considerably. Anytime a web page on an application-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a specific web page. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see old data. The platform is an ideal solution for every Internet site that draws numerous viewers, as it will make it ultra-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached memory caching system with all cloud hosting that we offer. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can enable with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for regularly visited sites with large-sized databases and lots of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the performance of every script-based site hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the distributed memory caching platform’s setup takes a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to accelerate any script-powered website, including those that are based on widely used apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The activation requires a couple of clicks of the mouse and you’ll see the difference in the performance of your sites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you have chosen, but at any rate it won’t 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 WordPress, Joomla or any other software application and reduce the load on your VPS, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than switching to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which shows its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering and the only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on popular apps – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven community website. Each dedicated server comes with a certain amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate the load speed of extremely heavy sites considerably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will start caching data the moment it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you will distinguish the enhanced performance of your sites and the reduced load on your server. Numerous sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their efficacy, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
