Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the performance of your site and decrease the created load significantly. Anytime a page on an app-powered website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a specific web page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never see outdated content. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for any Internet site that has numerous visitors, as it will make it load much faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host script-powered sites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached object caching system to your hosting plan with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you want. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you have a heavy-traffic site with lots of content, you may require more memory to be able to make the most 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 semi-dedicated hosting offered by us and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things specify how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your info. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-heavy site, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widely used Internet applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached comes as standard with all Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires so as to work correctly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can begin using the content caching platform once your brand-new Virtual Private Server is completely operational. The system memory that Memcached can use depends on the particular plan, but even with the low-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the VPS at the same time and to decrease the load on the machine even if you manage busy script-powered sites with multiple users. The caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-built script, and you will detect the better performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated web hosting offered by us and the only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on widely used Internet applications – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-driven community website. Each dedicated machine is tied to a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to enhance the load speed of very large websites significantly, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin storing data once it is activated, so soon thereafter, you will observe the improved performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. Numerous websites use the Memcached system to improve their efficacy, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
