Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the performance of your site and decrease the created load immensely. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a specific page. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for any site that draws lots of viewers, since it will make it load much faster and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux web hosting offered by us. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can acquire with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one reveals the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for regularly visited sites with large databases and plenty of visitors. Thus, you can supercharge the performance of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached content caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based app, you can use it for every website that you host on our platform, irrespective of what app you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-created application, etc. You can request the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things specify how many websites will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your data. The two features are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and the visitors will quickly spot the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with each virtual private server that we are offering as long as you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the full potential of this caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you select, the more memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared web hosting plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for numerous sites, irrespective of how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-driven web applications like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing content and you’ll notice the enhanced overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on popular web apps – for example, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-powered community site. Each dedicated machine comes with a specific amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to improve the load speed of very large sites noticeably, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will begin storing data as soon as it is enabled, so shortly thereafter, you will detect the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. Lots of websites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficacy, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
