Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the created load substantially. Every time a web page on an application-powered Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a certain page. If any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never see out-of-date data. Memcached is an ideal choice for every site that attracts many viewers, since it will speed it up and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can use the Memcached object caching system with all Linux shared hosting that we offer. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can order with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for busy sites with large-sized databases and a lot of visitors. In this way, you can enhance the overall performance of any script-based website hosted on our servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the caching platform’s activation requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much data it will cache, i.e. there are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use Memcached to speed up any script-powered website, including those that are based on popular software apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached comes by default with every virtual private server that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra cash to be able to use the potential of this caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared plan. This will permit you to use Memcached for multiple websites, irrespective of how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading your virtual machine. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-based applications like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you enable the Memcached system, it will start storing data and you’ll note the optimized overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated web hosting that we offer and the only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on popular software apps – for instance, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each server comes with a certain amount of system memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to increase the load speed of extremely popular sites significantly, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will start storing content the moment it is enabled, so soon thereafter, you’ll distinguish the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the decreased load on your dedicated server. Plenty of websites use Memcached to boost their efficacy, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
