Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the performance of your site and decrease the created server load drastically. Every time a web page on an app-powered Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a given page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. Memcached is an ideal option for any website that entices plenty of viewers, as it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached data caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud service that we offer and you can start using it as soon as you order it, since the extension that it needs so as to work correctly is already present on our cutting-edge cloud platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with every hosting package and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A frequently visited website with a large-sized database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you wish to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any time with several clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you buy any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory object caching platform is suitable for any script-powered application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built application, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you own a frequently visited Internet site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will enhance the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you purchase a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the data caching platform is offered with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run busy websites, you will be able to increase their performance without effort and the lowered load on your Virtual Private Server will permit you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server package rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store information depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will get at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, no matter if you have created it yourself or you are using a ready-made one such as Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can boost the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-powered web application you rely on or how heavy the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases immensely with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching info each time somebody opens your website, so, once sufficient information has been stored, you’ll notice the decreased load on your dedicated server and the improved performance of the Internet site. Memcached is used by plenty of websites, among them famous portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which verifies the efficiency of the Memcached system.
