Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and decrease the generated load considerably. Anytime a webpage on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a certain web page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an excellent choice for any Internet site that draws many viewers, as it will make it lightning-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux cloud hosting that we offer. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can get with just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first part determines the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. 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’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for traffic-heavy sites with large-size databases and numerous concurrent visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the overall performance of every script-powered site hosted on our servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the memory caching platform’s setup requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much info can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is pretty flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to speed up any script-driven website, including those based on famous apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

If you buy a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the caching platform is available with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own large-scale websites, you will be able to boost their performance without effort and the decreased load on the server will allow you to keep using your current package instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven app, regardless of whether you’ve built it on your own or you are using a ready-to-use one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers hosting packages offered by us and the one and only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on famous Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated machine comes with a given amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to speed up very popular websites enormously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will start storing data once it is activated, so soon after that, you will see the enhanced overall performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on your dedicated machine. Lots of sites use Memcached to enhance their effectiveness, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
