Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the performance of your website and reduce the created load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a particular page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is a perfect choice for any site that lures plenty of viewers, since it will make it amazingly fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux website hosting packages that we offer. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for high-demand sites with large-size databases and many concurrent visitors. Thus, you can enhance the speed of any script-based site hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by us and use its full capacity for any script-powered site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate how many websites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your data. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-hungry Internet site, for example. 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-powered website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on popular web apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes as standard with all VPS web hosting packages ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires to work correctly is compiled when the VPS server is configured, so you can start using the object caching platform the moment your brand new Virtual Private Server is fully functional. The memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the low-end ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to improve the performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to lower the load on the machine even if you have resource-demanding script-based web portals with many viewers. The Memcached platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-developed one, and you will observe the faster overall performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with only several clicks of the mouse. You can boost the performance of any website, regardless of what script-powered application you’re using or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises substantially with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching data every time someone opens your site, so, once sufficient data has been stored, you’ll notice the lowered load on the dedicated machine and the optimized performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is used by numerous websites, including popular portals like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the caching system.
