Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and decrease the produced load drastically. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a specific web page. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see old content. Memcached is an ideal solution for every website that attracts a lot of viewers, since it will make it faster than the speed of light and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-based sites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you own a large-size website with lots of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached object caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-driven web app, you can use it for any website that you host on our servers, regardless of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-developed app, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things show how many Internet sites will use Memcached and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two features are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and the visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available by default with all VPS hosting service that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires so as to function correctly is compiled when the virtual server is set up, so you can start using the caching platform once your new VPS server is ready. The system memory that Memcached can use depends on the given plan, but even with the less powerful ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the server simultaneously and to decrease the load on the virtual machine even if you own traffic-intensive script-powered sites with multiple users. The caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom-developed one, and you will observe the better performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can boost the overall performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-powered web application you rely on or how heavy the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows immensely with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will start caching data every time somebody visits your site, so, as soon as sufficient info has been cached, you will see the lowered load and the improved performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is being used by numerous sites, among them famous portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
