Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced load drastically. Anytime a webpage on an app-powered Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a given web page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see outdated data. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for every website that has plenty of viewers, as it will make it open much faster and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all cloud hosting service that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can enable with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large-size databases and a lot of users. Thus, you can increase the overall performance of any script-powered website hosted on our servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated service that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things show how many websites can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to cache your data. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not tied to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single busy site, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its nature, including those that are based on popular Internet apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and plenty of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the content caching platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage content-heavy Internet sites, you can optimize their performance effortlessly and the decreased load on the server will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to store data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web app, regardless of whether you’ve developed it on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated service offered by our company and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on widely used Internet applications – for example, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-driven community site. Each server comes with a given amount of system memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to improve the loading speed of very heavy websites substantially, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will begin storing information the moment it is enabled, so shortly thereafter, you will see the improved performance of your sites and the lowered server load. A lot of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to improve their effectiveness, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
