Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and reduce the created load significantly. Anytime a page on an app-powered 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 of the content that should appear on a specific webpage. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for every Internet site that has a lot of viewers, since it will boost its speed and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every hosting plan offered by our company and in case you want to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object 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 total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache information, so for numerous websites (or for one single traffic-hungry site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, each script-powered website hosted on our servers will load blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a few mouse clicks. The caching platform is perfect for any script-powered app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-developed app, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to select two different things – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you own a traffic-consuming Internet site with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will accelerate the performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform through the section with the very same name. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll see the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache information depends on the given VPS hosting plan that you’ve picked, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several content-rich sites. You can use Memcached with sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other web-based application and reduce the load on your server, which will allow you to continue using the current plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which proves its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you purchase any of our Linux dedicated service and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can set it up for any website that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing info as users access your site, so you will see the result of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for plenty of sites or for a very popular website without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will permit you to enhance the loading speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to improve the performance of your server.
