Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and lessen the generated load substantially. Every time a web page on an application-powered site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a specific page. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for every Internet site that lures many visitors, as it will make it incredibly fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of Memcached with all cloud hosting that we offer. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can order with just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-demand sites with large databases and plenty of simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can supercharge the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your account, you can add it with only a few mouse clicks. The distributed memory caching platform is suitable for any script-based web application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom app, and based on your demands, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you run a frequently visited website with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will improve the overall performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached comes by default with all VPS hosting services that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires in order to perform correctly is compiled when the virtual server is configured, so you can begin using the distributed memory caching platform the moment your new VPS is completely functional. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the given plan, but even with the less powerful plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to increase the performance of numerous websites hosted on the Virtual Private Server at the same time and to lower the load even if you have large script-powered online portals with lots of visitors. Memcached can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom-developed one, and you’ll notice the better performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all dedicated hosting services offered by us and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated machine 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 famous software applications – for instance, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-driven social network. Each server is tied to a given amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to increase the loading speed of very large websites considerably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start caching content as soon as it is enabled, so soon after that, you will note the optimized overall performance of your websites and the lowered load on your dedicated server. A lot of sites use Memcached to enhance their efficacy, among them popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
