Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced server load substantially. Every time a web page on an application-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a particular page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see old data. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for any Internet site that lures lots of viewers, as it will make it really fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each cloud hosting account that we offer and in case you wish to use it for any script-based site that you host on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in several simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache information, so for multiple websites (or for one large-scale site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, every script-based Internet site hosted on our servers will open extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you buy one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your account, you can enable it with only a couple of mouse clicks. The memory caching platform is perfect for any script-powered app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-built app, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to choose two separate features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you run a traffic-heavy Internet site with lots of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will increase the overall performance of your websites soon after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the data caching platform through the section with the very same name. The setup requires a few clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store information depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have picked, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several busy sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet app and reduce the load on your VPS, which will permit you to continue using the current package instead of migrating to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which demonstrates its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated servers offered by our company and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on famous web-based apps – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-powered community web portal. Each server comes with a different amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to improve the speed of very heavy websites seriously, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will begin storing info the moment it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you will distinguish the optimized performance of your websites and the reduced load on your dedicated machine. Plenty of sites use Memcached to boost their effectiveness, among them popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
