Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated load drastically. Anytime a page on an application-powered website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, 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 ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see old content. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for any site that entices lots of viewers, as it will make it blazing-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared hosting plan with only a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you manage a larger website with lots of content, you may require more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-powered app, you can use it for any site that you host on our servers, no matter what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-developed app, etc. You can order the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things indicate how many websites will use the Memcached caching system and the amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your data. The two features are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use Memcached with any kind of website and both you and the site visitors will swiftly perceive the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

If you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the object caching platform is offered with all virtual servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run data-loaded sites, you can boost their overall performance with no effort and the decreased load on the Virtual Private Server will allow you to keep 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 information depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, no matter if you have developed it on your own or you are using a ready-to-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting offered by us and the only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on popular Internet applications – for example, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each dedicated server is tied to a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate the load speed of extremely busy sites noticeably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start storing content as soon as it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you will distinguish the optimized performance of your websites and the decreased load on your dedicated server. Numerous sites use Memcached to boost their effectiveness, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
