Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and decrease the created server load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an app-powered site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a particular web page. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for any website that has plenty of visitors, since it will make it open faster and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can use the Memcached content caching system with all Linux cloud hosting that we offer. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can activate with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for traffic-intensive websites with very large databases and a lot of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can accelerate the loading speed of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your data. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not bound to a particular amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single resource-consuming site, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widely used Internet apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS

When you order a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the distributed memory object caching platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run traffic-hungry Internet sites, you’ll be able to accelerate their performance effortlessly and the reduced load on the virtual server will allow you to keep using your current VPS plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache info depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have no less than several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use Memcached with any database-driven app, no matter if you have created it yourself or you’re using a ready-made one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated hosting offered by us and the one and 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-powered Internet site, including those that are based on popular apps – for example, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-driven community site. Each server is tied to a specific amount of system memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the load speed of very heavy sites seriously, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will start caching content once it’s enabled, so soon after that, you will see the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. Numerous sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their efficiency, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
