Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your site and lessen the generated server load immensely. Every time a webpage on an application-powered site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a certain page. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see old data. The platform is a perfect choice for every Internet site that lures numerous viewers, since it will make it truly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your hosting plan with just a couple of clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary PHP extension is pre-installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right 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 system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you have a large site with lots of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by us and use its full potential for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the system memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your information. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single regularly visited site, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those based on popular web applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and many companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform via the section with the exact same name. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and you will detect the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that Memcached can take advantage of to store information depends on the given VPS hosting plan that you have picked, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple data-heavy websites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet app and reduce the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to keep using the current VPS package instead of switching to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a confirmation of its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer and the only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on popular applications – for instance, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated server comes with a certain amount of memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to optimize the speed of extremely popular sites enormously, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will begin caching data as soon as it is activated, so soon thereafter, you will notice the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the lowered load. Lots of sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their efficiency, including famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
