Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can improve the performance of your website and reduce the generated load significantly. Every time a web page on an application-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a certain webpage. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see old data. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for every website that attracts plenty of viewers, since it will make it ultra-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached caching system is available as an optional upgrade with every cloud service offered by our company and you will be able to start using it once you add it, as the extension that it needs so as to run correctly is pre-installed on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every shared web hosting package and a new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, specifies the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-heavy website with a large-sized database may need more memory to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you’d like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the distributed memory caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much info it will cache, in other words – there’re two different upgradable features – the instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is exceptionally flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to increase the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those based on widely used apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the caching platform through the section with the same name. The activation takes several mouse clicks and you will distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of memory that Memcached can take advantage of to store info depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you have chosen, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-intensive sites. You can use Memcached with websites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other software application and decrease the load on your VPS server, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which proves its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with just a few clicks. You can increase the performance of any website, regardless of what script-based software application you rely on or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount grows immensely with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching data every time somebody accesses your website, so, as soon as enough information has been cached, you’ll distinguish the reduced load and the optimized performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by many sites, including popular portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which confirms the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
