Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and decrease the created load greatly. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a given web page. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for any website that has many visitors, since it will make it blazing-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each cloud web hosting package that we are offering and in case you want to use it for any script-based website that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache data, so for numerous sites (or for one single traffic-intensive site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, each script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will open much faster.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a few clicks. The platform is ideal for any script-powered web application like WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made application, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many websites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a traffic-hungry Internet site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will optimize the performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much better load times.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs in order to work properly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is configured, so you can begin using the memory caching platform the moment your brand new VPS is up and running. The memory that Memcached can use depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the server simultaneously and to decrease the load on the virtual machine even if you’ve got resource-demanding script-driven web pages with multiple visitors. Memcached can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom-developed script, and you will distinguish the better overall performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated hosting services offered by our company and the only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven social network. Each server is tied to a different amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to optimize the load speed of extremely heavy sites substantially, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin storing information the moment it is activated, so soon after that, you’ll observe the optimized performance of your websites and the decreased load. Many Internet sites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
