Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your site and decrease the produced server load greatly. Every time a webpage on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a particular webpage. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see outdated data. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for every site that has numerous visitors, as it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-driven websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your shared web hosting plan with only a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can start 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 the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you like. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a high-demand site with lots of content, you may need more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things indicate how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your data. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single resource-hungry Internet site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those based on popular web-based applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and a lot of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is available by default with all VPS that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it needs so as to perform properly is compiled when the VPS server is configured, so you can start using the data caching platform once your brand-new server is fully operational. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the low-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to enhance the performance of numerous websites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to lower the load even if you’ve got large script-based web portals with lots of users. The caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom one, and you will observe the better overall performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated hosting offered by us and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on famous web-based applications – for example, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-powered community web portal. Each server is tied to a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate the load speed of extremely busy websites seriously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will start caching info once it is activated, so soon after that, you’ll note the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on your dedicated machine. Numerous sites use Memcached to enhance their efficacy, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
