Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated server load immensely. Every time a web page on an app-powered website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a certain page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see outdated content. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for any Internet site that draws a lot of viewers, since it will make it faster than light and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system comes as an upgrade with each hosting plan offered by us and you’ll be able to start using it once you enable it, as the extension that it needs in order to run correctly is pre-installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every web hosting package and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, determines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A busy website with a large database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you wish to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any time with a few mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated plans and since it works with any script-driven web app, you can use it for each website that you host on our platform, regardless of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-developed application, etc. You can request the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things indicate the number of the websites that will use the Memcached system and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your information. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached with any type of site and both you and the site visitors will swiftly distinguish the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with each and every VPS server that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay anything extra to be able to use the power of this content caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for multiple websites, regardless of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-driven software apps such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will start storing content and you will note the improved overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by us if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-based software application you’re using or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases tremendously with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching data anytime someone browses your website, so, as soon as enough info has been cached, you’ll distinguish the reduced load and the enhanced overall performance of your site. Memcached is being used by numerous websites, including popular portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which proves the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
