Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the created load drastically. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information 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 given page. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for every Internet site that entices numerous viewers, as it will boost its speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is available as an upgrade with every Linux cloud web hosting offered by us and you will be able to begin using it once you add it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to function properly is pre-installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with every hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, determines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A frequently visited site with a large database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you’d like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any time with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the platform’s activation takes a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much data can be cached, i.e. there are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to increase the speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those based on famous web apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it requires so as to perform correctly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching platform as soon as your new virtual server is up and running. The memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end ones, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of multiple sites hosted on the Virtual Private Server at the same time and to decrease the load even if you’ve got busy script-based sites with lots of users. Memcached can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-built script, and you will see the better performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with just several clicks of the mouse. You can increase the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-driven software app you rely on or how popular the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount increases enormously with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching data every time somebody browses your site, so, once enough information has been cached, you’ll detect the lowered load on your server and the optimized performance of the website. The Memcached caching system is being used by many websites, among them popular portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which demonstrates the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
