Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can boost the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the created server load drastically. Every time a web page on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a certain page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is a perfect solution for every Internet site that lures plenty of viewers, as it will make it blazing-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use the Memcached content caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting that we are offering. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can obtain with just a few clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first part shows the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for heavy-traffic sites with very large databases and numerous simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can accelerate the overall performance of any script-driven site hosted on our servers effortlessly.

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, since the memory caching platform’s activation requires a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much data it will cache, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to accelerate any script-driven website, including those based on famous software applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is available by default with all VPS hosting services that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires to function correctly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is configured, so you can begin using the data caching platform once your brand-new Virtual Private Server is fully operational. The memory that Memcached can use depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to improve the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the server at the same time and to decrease the load on the virtual machine even if you manage content-heavy script-driven web pages with numerous users. The platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom-made script, and you’ll observe the better overall performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated web hosting that we’re offering and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used apps – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven social networking site. Each server is tied to a given amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to optimize the load speed of extremely busy websites noticeably, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin caching information the moment it’s enabled, so soon after that, you will notice the enhanced overall performance of your sites and the reduced load on the dedicated server. A lot of sites use the Memcached caching system to improve their efficiency, including famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
