Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your site and reduce the produced load substantially. Anytime a web page on an app-powered website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a certain webpage. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for any site that attracts numerous visitors, since it will increase its speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached object caching system with all Linux hosting plans that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can enable with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part determines the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for popular sites with large-size databases and many concurrent visitors. Thus, you can boost the speed of any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, since the object caching platform’s setup takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached to boost the speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those based on famous Internet apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The activation takes several clicks of the mouse and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store data depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you’ve picked, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple data-loaded websites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other web application and reduce the load on your virtual machine, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server package instead of moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which demonstrates its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can use the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with only several clicks of the mouse. You can accelerate the overall performance of any website, regardless of what script-driven software application you are using or how popular the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows seriously with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching information every time someone browses your website, so, once enough information has been stored, you’ll perceive the lowered load on your dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of the website. The Memcached system is being used by lots of sites, including famous portals like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which confirms the effectiveness of the caching system.
