Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an application-powered site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a certain webpage. If any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see outdated data. The platform is a perfect solution for any Internet site that draws a lot of visitors, since it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached data caching system is offered as an upgrade with each Linux website hosting package that we offer and you’ll be able to start using it as soon as you order it, as the PHP extension that it requires so as to work properly is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A regularly visited Internet site with a large-size database may require more memory to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you’d like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any moment with a few mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages offered by our company and make use of its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. 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 indicate the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your info. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not tied to a particular amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for one large site, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widespread Internet applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to optimize the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with each virtual private server offered by us provided that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the full potential of this caching system. The more powerful VPS package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for plenty of websites, no matter how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading your VPS server. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-based software apps such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will start caching content and you’ll distinguish the optimized overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer and the one and only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on famous web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each dedicated server comes with a certain amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to optimize the loading speed of extremely heavy sites substantially, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start caching content as soon as it’s activated, so shortly after that, you’ll detect the improved performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on the dedicated server. Numerous sites use Memcached to boost their effectiveness, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
