Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and decrease the created load greatly. Every time a page on an app-powered site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific web page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is a perfect solution for any website that draws plenty of viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

The Memcached object caching system comes as an upgrade with every cloud website hosting offered by our company and you will be able to begin using it the moment you enable it, as the PHP extension that it requires in order to work correctly is already installed on our innovative cloud platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every shared hosting plan and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A popular Internet site with a large-sized database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you wish to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a few clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the memory caching platform’s activation requires several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to speed up any script-powered website, including those that are based on famous web-based applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform through the section with the very same name. The activation takes a few clicks of the mouse and you’ll notice the difference in the performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store content depends on the given VPS hosting package that you’ve picked, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-hungry Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other app and reduce the load on your virtual machine, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package instead of switching to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated web hosting plans that we’re offering and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on widely used software apps – for example, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated server comes with a different amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to optimize the loading speed of very busy websites greatly, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start storing data the moment it’s enabled, so shortly after that, you will note the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the decreased server load. Plenty of Internet sites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, including famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
