Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your website and lessen the generated load tremendously. Every time a web page on an app-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a particular page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see outdated content. The platform is an excellent solution for any site that lures a lot of visitors, since it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

The Memcached object caching system is offered as an upgrade with each Linux cloud website hosting package offered by us and you can begin using it the moment you order it, as the extension that it needs so as to work properly is already installed on our advanced cloud platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every plan and a brand new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 MB, indicates the total size of the content that the system can cache. A popular site with a large-size database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you want to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with a couple of clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the object caching platform’s setup takes a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can get 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 stunningly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to increase the loading speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on famous software apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is available by default with all VPS web hosting ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires in order to function properly is compiled when the VPS server is configured, so you can begin using the memory caching platform once your brand-new server is fully functional. The system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to enhance the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the server at the same time and to lower the load on the machine even if you own content-loaded script-powered web pages with many users. The caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom-built script, and you will observe the better overall performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with just several clicks of the mouse. You can accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-based web application you are using or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises seriously with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching data every time somebody opens your website, so, once enough content has been stored, you will perceive the reduced load on the dedicated server and the optimized overall performance of your Internet site. Memcached is used by many websites, among them popular portals like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which shows the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
