Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and reduce the created load greatly. Every time a webpage on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given web page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never see old data. Memcached is an ideal choice for every site that draws plenty of visitors, as it will make it truly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

When you host script-based sites in a web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add Memcached to your hosting plan with just a few clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the needed extension is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system 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 want. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you run a traffic-hungry website with lots of data, you may need more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get Memcached as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-driven web app, you can use it for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-built one, etc. You can order the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things define how many Internet sites will use the Memcached system and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your info. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and your site visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you purchase a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the distributed memory caching platform comes with all VPSs that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own large-size websites, you will be able to improve their overall performance without any effort and the reduced load on your virtual machine will allow you to continue using your current VPS hosting package instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get no less than several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, irrespective of whether you’ve built it yourself or you’re using a ready-to-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated servers offered by us and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on popular web-based apps – for instance, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-driven social network. Each dedicated server comes with a given amount of memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the speed of extremely heavy sites tremendously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start caching info as soon as it is enabled, so shortly after that, you will detect the optimized performance of your sites and the reduced load on the server. Lots of sites use the Memcached system to increase their effectiveness, including famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
