Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and reduce the generated load significantly. Every time a page on an application-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a specific webpage. If any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The platform is a perfect choice for any site that entices plenty of viewers, since it will boost its speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux cloud hosting packages that we offer. It is available as an upgrade, which you can add with just a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-demand websites with very large databases and a lot of users. In this way, you can improve the loading speed of every script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with just a couple of clicks. The caching platform is suitable for any script-based web app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a tailor-made one, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to choose two different features – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you run a regularly visited site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. Memcached will increase the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with every virtual private server offered by us on the condition that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the power of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared plan. This will permit you to use Memcached for many Internet sites, irrespective of how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading your virtual server. The caching system is excellent for script-based apps like OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will start storing information and you will note the optimized overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by us and the one and only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on widely used software apps – for example, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each dedicated server is tied to a different amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate extremely large sites noticeably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start caching content the moment it is enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll detect the optimized overall performance of your websites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. A lot of sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their effectiveness, among them popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
