Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your site and decrease the produced load tremendously. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a particular page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see old content. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for any Internet site that lures lots of visitors, since it will accelerate it and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each cloud hosting plan offered by our company and in case you would like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache data, so for lots of sites (or for one single traffic-hungry site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, any script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in your account, you can activate it with only a few clicks. The memory caching platform is ideal for any script-based web app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom application, and based on your needs, you will be able to select two separate things – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you run a frequently visited website with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the overall performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the object caching platform via the section with the same name. The activation takes a couple of mouse clicks and you will notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store content depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have picked, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several high-demand sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other software application and lower the load on your virtual server, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which confirms its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans that we offer and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous web apps – for example, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated machine is tied to a given amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the loading speed of very busy websites noticeably, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start caching info the moment it is activated, so shortly after that, you’ll distinguish the optimized overall performance of your sites and the reduced load on the server. Numerous Internet sites use Memcached to enhance their efficacy, including popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
