Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and reduce the created server load substantially. Every time a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a specific web page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for every website that attracts lots of visitors, since it will make it ultra-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting account offered by our company and if you wish to use it for any script-based site that you host on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache content, so for multiple sites (or for one single resource-intensive site), you should order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With Memcached, any script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers will load amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the platform’s setup takes a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much content can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to boost the loading speed of any script-driven site, including those based on famous Internet apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The setup takes a few clicks of the mouse and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ to cache content depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve selected, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several data-loaded sites. You can use Memcached with websites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other software app and lower the load on your VPS, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which confirms its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the data caching system the moment your server is completely operational, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you have chosen, but since our servers are extremely powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of very large sites with no effort and you will note the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system starts caching database queries. You can make the most of the system with any database-driven online portal, including those that are based on famous CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
