Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your website and decrease the produced load immensely. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a specific page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never see outdated content. The platform is an ideal choice for any website that lures many viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a shared website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required PHP extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you want. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a traffic-hungry site with lots of content, you may need more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your information. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not linked to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one large Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its type, including those that are based on popular web apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that we are offering as long as you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to use the maximum capacity of this memory caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you select, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for many sites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading the VPS server. The caching system is ideal for script-driven web apps like WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will start storing info and you will perceive the optimized overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated hosting that we are offering and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on widely used Internet applications – for instance, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each dedicated server is tied to a given amount of system memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the speed of extremely heavy websites substantially, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin storing information the moment it is activated, so soon after that, you’ll notice the enhanced overall performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on the dedicated server. Numerous websites use Memcached to increase their efficiency, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
