Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your website and reduce the created load immensely. Anytime a web page on an application-powered website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a certain web page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see outdated content. The platform is an excellent solution for any Internet site that lures plenty of viewers, since it will make it truly fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting account that we’re offering and in case you wish to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to add it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache data, so for numerous websites (or for one single resource-consuming site), you may want to order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers will open amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with only a couple of mouse clicks. The data caching platform is suitable for any script-powered software app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made application, and depending on your requirements, you’ll be able to select two separate features – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a traffic-hungry website with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will increase the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the content caching platform comes with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own content-heavy Internet sites, you will be able to optimize their performance without any effort and the lowered load on your virtual server will permit you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache information depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, regardless of whether you have built it yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated servers that we’re offering and the only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting 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 journal or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each dedicated server is tied to a given amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the loading speed of extremely busy sites immensely, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will start caching content the moment it’s enabled, so shortly after that, you’ll see the improved performance of your websites and the reduced server load. Lots of websites use the Memcached caching system to improve their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
