Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced load substantially. Every time a web page on an app-powered site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a certain webpage. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. Memcached is a perfect solution for any site that attracts lots of viewers, as it will increase its speed and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting package that we offer and if you’d like to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache information, so for lots of websites (or for one single resource-consuming site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, any script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers will load amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based software app, you can use it for any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-developed app, etc. You can add the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things specify the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two features are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any type of website and both you and the visitors will swiftly see the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you order a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the memory caching platform comes with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage regularly visited sites, you will be able to improve their overall performance without efforts and the lowered server load will permit you to keep your current VPS package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to store information depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered application, regardless of whether you’ve written it yourself or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated web hosting offered by us and the only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on widely used apps – for example, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated server comes with a particular amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to increase the loading speed of extremely busy sites tremendously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will start caching information the moment it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll notice the improved performance of your sites and the lowered load on your dedicated machine. Many sites use Memcached to increase their efficiency, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
