Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can boost the performance of your website and reduce the created load immensely. Every time a page on an app-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a given page. When any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The platform is a perfect option for every website that lures a lot of visitors, as it will make it open much faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting plan offered by us and if you would like to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to order it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache content, so for numerous sites (or for one resource-intensive site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered website hosted on our servers will load amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things determine how many sites can use Memcached and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your info. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one large-size Internet site, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its type, including those based on widely used Internet apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you buy a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the content caching platform is available with all VPS servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run large-scale Internet sites, you will be able to optimize their overall performance with no effort and the reduced load on the virtual server will permit you to continue using your current plan rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store data depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, no matter if you’ve built it on your own or you’re using a ready-made one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by our company and the only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on famous applications – for instance, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-powered community website. Each server is tied to a given amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the loading speed of extremely large websites noticeably, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will start storing info once it’s activated, so soon thereafter, you will note the improved overall performance of your sites and the lowered load on the dedicated machine. Plenty of sites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
