Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced load immensely. Anytime a page on an app-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a specific page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never see old content. Memcached is a perfect option for any website that attracts many visitors, as it will make it load faster and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is offered as an upgrade with every Linux cloud web hosting that we’re offering and you will be able to start using it the moment you add it, since the extension that it requires in order to perform correctly is already available on our leading-edge cloud platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every web hosting package and a new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A popular Internet site with a large-size database may need more memory to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you want to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with just a few clicks. The platform is perfect for any script-powered application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed one, and based on your needs, you will be able to select two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you manage a regularly visited Internet site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will optimize the performance of your websites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster load times.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is included by default with every virtual private server offered by our company as long as you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the full power of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for numerous sites, no matter how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the VPS. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-powered software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached system, it will start storing data and you will see the improved overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated hosting services offered by our company and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on widely used web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-powered social network. Each dedicated machine is tied to a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate extremely large websites greatly, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will start storing content once it’s activated, so soon thereafter, you’ll see the enhanced performance of your Internet sites and the reduced server load. Lots of sites use Memcached to increase their efficiency, including famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
