Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your website and reduce the produced server load drastically. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a certain webpage. If any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an excellent solution for every Internet site that lures many viewers, as it will increase its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each cloud web hosting account offered by us and in case you want to use it for any script-based website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache information, so for plenty of websites (or for one regularly visited site), you may want to order more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will open faster than the speed of light.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can add it with only a couple of mouse clicks. The object caching platform is perfect for any script-powered web application like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed app, and depending on your requirements, you will be able to select two different things – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a busy Internet site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. Memcached will accelerate the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much better load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with each and every VPS server offered by our company on the condition that you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the maximum capacity of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared package. This will allow you to use Memcached for multiple sites, no matter how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the VPS. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-powered apps such as OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing information and you’ll spot the improved performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with just several mouse clicks. You can improve the performance of any website, irrespective of what script-based app you rely on or how popular the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount rises significantly with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will begin caching information anytime someone browses your site, so, once sufficient info has been stored, you will perceive the decreased load on your server and the enhanced performance of the site. Memcached is used by a lot of websites, among them famous portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
