Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your site and lessen the produced load significantly. Every time a page on an application-driven website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a certain web page. When any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for any site that draws numerous viewers, as it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your hosting plan with only a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed PHP extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you need. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a regularly visited website with a lot of content, you may need more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the platform’s activation requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to boost the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous web apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS packages ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it needs in order to work correctly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching platform once your new virtual server is up and running. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to accelerate the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the Virtual Private Server at the same time and to lower the load on the virtual machine even if you own data-rich script-powered web portals with a lot of viewers. The platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom-made script, and you’ll detect the better performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer and the sole condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on popular software applications – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-powered community site. Each dedicated server comes with a different amount of memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the loading speed of extremely heavy sites noticeably, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will start caching content as soon as it’s activated, so shortly after that, you’ll detect the improved performance of your websites and the lowered load on the dedicated machine. Plenty of sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their effectiveness, including famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
