Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, 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 is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the generated server load greatly. Every time a web page on an app-powered website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a particular web page. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for any site that attracts lots of visitors, as it will make it really fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud hosting package offered by us and you can begin using it the moment you order it, as the extension that it needs in order to function correctly is already available on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 16 MB, indicates the total size of the content that the system can cache. A busy Internet site with a large database may require more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you want to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any moment with several clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached content caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages and since it works with any script-based web application, you can use it for every website that you host on our platform, no matter what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom application, etc. You can order the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things show how many sites will use the Memcached system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to store your content. The two features are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and your website visitors will quickly see the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages offered by our company when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform via the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The configuration requires several mouse clicks and you will notice the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache content depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you’ve chosen, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several content-heavy sites. You can use Memcached with websites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other web application and reduce the load on your VPS, which will enable you to continue using the current package instead of moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which demonstrates its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you order one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached object caching platform as standard and you can set it up for each Internet site that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing info as users visit your site, so you’ll detect the results of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for plenty of sites or for an extremely heavy website without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to accelerate the load speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
