Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and reduce the created server load greatly. Every time a page on an app-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a given webpage. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for any Internet site that attracts a lot of viewers, since it will make it lightning-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

You can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux shared website hosting offered by us. It is available as an upgrade, which you can acquire with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part shows the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for popular sites with very large databases and numerous concurrent visitors. Thus, you can improve the performance of any script-driven site hosted on our servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the content caching platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to increase the loading speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on popular Internet applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you buy a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the distributed memory caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you have traffic-hungry sites, you will be able to accelerate their overall performance with no effort and the decreased load will permit you to keep using your current package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be great. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered application, no matter if you’ve set it up yourself or you’re using a ready-made one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers hosting packages offered by us and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on famous web apps – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered community website. Each dedicated server is tied to a given amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to speed up extremely busy sites noticeably, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start caching data the moment it is activated, so soon thereafter, you will note the improved overall performance of your websites and the reduced load. Numerous websites use Memcached to enhance their effectiveness, including popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
