Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and decrease the created server load tremendously. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a particular web page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing old content. The platform is a perfect option for every site that lures many viewers, since it will make it super-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all cloud web hosting plans that we are offering. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can acquire with just a few clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for popular websites with large databases and lots of users. Thus, you can improve the performance of any script-based site hosted on our servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much info can be cached, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can employ Memcached to speed up any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous Internet apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The configuration requires several clicks and you will detect the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache content depends on the given VPS plan that you have selected, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several large-size websites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other software app and reduce the load on your virtual machine, which will allow you to continue using the current plan instead of switching to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which demonstrates its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering and the one and only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on popular apps – for example, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each dedicated machine comes with a given amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to enhance the loading speed of very heavy websites seriously, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin caching info the moment it is activated, so soon thereafter, you will detect the optimized performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on the server. Plenty of Internet sites use Memcached to improve their effectiveness, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
