Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your site and reduce the generated server load substantially. Anytime a page on an app-powered website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a specific web page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for every site that draws numerous visitors, as it will make it open much faster and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a web hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your web hosting package with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you manage a resource-demanding website with a lot of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get Memcached as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-driven application, you can use it for every website that you host on our servers, regardless of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-developed app, etc. You can add the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things show how many websites will use Memcached and how much memory the system will be able to use in order to store your content. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and the visitors will quickly note the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with each VPS server offered by us provided that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the full capacity of this content caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared hosting plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for lots of sites, regardless of how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading your server. The caching system is excellent for script-based web applications like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will start caching data and you’ll detect the enhanced performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated web hosting plans that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on famous web-based apps – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-powered community site. Each server comes with a given amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to improve the speed of extremely popular websites greatly, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin storing data as soon as it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll notice the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on your server. Lots of websites use Memcached to enhance their effectiveness, including popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
