Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the performance of your site and reduce the created load significantly. Every time a web page on an application-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a given web page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see old content. Memcached is a perfect choice for any site that attracts numerous visitors, since it will make it extra-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-powered sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached memory caching system to your shared web hosting package with only a few clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the PHP extension needed for it is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a regularly visited website with a lot of content, you may require more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached object caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-driven web app, you can use it for any website that you host on our servers, regardless of what app you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-created app, etc. You can order the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things define how many Internet sites will use Memcached and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to store your content. The two things are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and the site visitors will swiftly perceive the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with all VPS web hosting packages ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs to work properly is compiled when the virtual server is set up, so you can start using the caching platform as soon as your new virtual server is ready. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the low-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to boost the overall performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS at the same time and to decrease the load on the virtual machine even if you have busy script-driven online portals with numerous users. The platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-made one, and you will observe the faster overall performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can enhance the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-powered app you are using or how large the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows seriously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching info anytime someone visits your site, so, once sufficient data has been cached, you’ll detect the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the improved performance of your Internet site. Memcached is being used by many sites, including popular portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is an evidence of the efficiency of the caching system.
