Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and decrease the created load greatly. Anytime a page on an app-powered site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a certain webpage. If any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see outdated data. Memcached is a perfect choice for every website that entices numerous visitors, as it will make it load much faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting package offered by us and in case you would like to use it for any script-based site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache info, so for many websites (or for one frequently visited site), you’d better order more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, any script-powered website hosted on our servers will load amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks. The memory caching platform is perfect for any script-based web application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom app, and depending on your requirements, you’ll be able to select two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you manage a traffic-intensive Internet site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will optimize the performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy better load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the distributed memory object caching platform is offered with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you have large-size websites, you will be able to increase their performance without any effort and the lowered load on your VPS will permit you to keep your current VPS hosting package instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can use Memcached with any database-driven web app, no matter if you have written it on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers that we are offering and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on widely used web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-driven community site. Each server comes with a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the speed of very heavy sites enormously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start caching info once it is activated, so soon thereafter, you’ll notice the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their efficiency, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
