Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and reduce the produced server load substantially. Anytime a web page on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a specific page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for any Internet site that lures plenty of viewers, since it will make it blazing-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting account offered by our company and if you’d like to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in several easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache data, so for lots of websites (or for one single large-scale site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, every script-driven website hosted on our servers will load faster than the speed of light.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with just a few clicks. The content caching platform is ideal for any script-based software app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-developed one, and based on your requirements, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you own a high-demand site with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will boost the overall performance of your sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better load times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the data caching platform comes with all virtual servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have traffic-intensive sites, you will be able to accelerate their overall performance without efforts and the decreased load on your VPS will enable you to keep your current plan rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store information depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get no less than several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can use Memcached with any database-driven application, no matter if you have built it on your own or you are using a ready-to-use one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we are offering in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with just several clicks of the mouse. You can optimize the performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-based app you rely on or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases substantially with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will start caching info anytime someone visits your site, so, as soon as enough data has been stored, you will notice the decreased load on your dedicated server and the enhanced overall performance of the website. The Memcached system is used by lots of websites, among them famous portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is an evidence of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
