Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated load substantially. Every time a web page on an app-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a certain webpage. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never see outdated content. Memcached is an ideal option for any website that has plenty of visitors, as it will make it load faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

You can use the Memcached object caching system with all website hosting that we offer. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can acquire with just a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first part determines the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for popular websites with very large databases and a lot of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the speed of any script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers effortlessly.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the object caching platform’s setup takes several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to improve the speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous web-based apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans that we’re offering when you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The setup takes several clicks and you will notice the difference in the performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache information depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you’ve chosen, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several content-loaded sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other web application and decrease the load on your virtual server, which will allow you to keep using the current package rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a proof of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this object caching system once the server is up and running, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but as our servers are astonishingly powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-heavy websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to optimize the performance of extremely popular Internet sites without efforts and you will detect the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database calls. You can take full advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web portal, including those based on widely used CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
