Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and decrease the produced server load substantially. Every time a webpage on an app-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a certain page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. Memcached is a perfect solution for any Internet site that attracts numerous viewers, since it will speed it up and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all Linux shared web hosting that we offer. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with only a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a good idea for popular websites with large databases and plenty of simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can accelerate the performance of any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with just a couple of mouse clicks. The content caching platform is ideal for any script-driven software application like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made app, and based on your needs, you will be able to select two separate features – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you have a traffic-heavy site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will boost the overall performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

If you purchase a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the object caching platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have large sites, you can enhance their overall performance without any effort and the decreased load on your virtual server will allow you to keep your current VPS package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can use Memcached with any database-powered application, no matter if you have created it on your own or you’re using a ready-made one such as WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with just a couple of clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any site, regardless of what script-based app you rely on or how popular the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises considerably with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching info every time someone browses your site, so, as soon as enough content has been cached, you’ll perceive the reduced load on the dedicated server and the optimized overall performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is being used by lots of websites, among them popular portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
