Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced load significantly. Anytime a web page on an app-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a particular page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The platform is a perfect solution for every site that lures many viewers, since it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-based sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached caching system to your shared hosting plan with just a few clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you wish. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a resource-absorbing site with a lot of content, you may need more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting service and since it works with any script-based software application, you can use it for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what app you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-developed one, etc. You can order the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things specify the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached and the amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your information. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any sort of site and both you and your site visitors will quickly notice the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with each and every VPS server offered by us on the condition that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the full capacity of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for multiple sites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading your VPS server. The caching system is perfect for script-powered web applications like OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will begin caching data and you will distinguish the enhanced overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can enhance the performance of any website, no matter what script-powered web application you are using or how busy the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount increases significantly with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching info each time someone visits your website, so, once sufficient content has been stored, you will detect the reduced load on the dedicated server and the improved performance of your site. Memcached is being used by many sites, including popular portals like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of the effectiveness of the caching system.
