Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and decrease the created load significantly. Every time a webpage on an app-driven website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a particular web page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see outdated data. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for any site that lures a lot of viewers, since it will make it truly fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a cloud website hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached memory caching system to your shared web hosting package with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the needed PHP extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate 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 available in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a regularly visited site with a lot of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things define the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to store your content. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single large-sized website, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widely used web applications like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and plenty of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you get a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the distributed memory caching platform is offered with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got resource-consuming websites, you will be able to optimize their performance without effort and the lowered load on your virtual server will enable you to keep your current Virtual Private Server package rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store information depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, irrespective of whether you have built it yourself or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we’re offering in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the machine with only several clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any website, no matter what script-driven application you are using or how busy the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases considerably with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching info anytime someone accesses your website, so, once enough content has been cached, you’ll notice the reduced server load and the enhanced overall performance of the Internet site. Memcached is being used by lots of websites, including famous portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
