Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can increase the performance of your website and lessen the created server load drastically. Anytime a page on an application-driven site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a certain web page. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is an excellent choice for every site that lures many viewers, as it will make it amazingly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every hosting account offered by our company and if you’d like to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache data, so for a lot of websites (or for one single large-size site), you’d better order more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, each script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will open faster than the speed of light.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add Memcached to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things specify the number of the websites that can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to cache your information. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single traffic-consuming Internet site, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widespread apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and lots of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with each and every VPS server that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra money to be able to take advantage of the maximum potential of this memory caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will allow you to use Memcached for multiple sites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading your VPS. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-based web applications like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will start caching data and you will spot the improved performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with just a few clicks. You can optimize the overall performance of any site, no matter what script-powered application you rely on or how busy the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases considerably with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching info anytime someone browses your website, so, as soon as enough info has been cached, you’ll perceive the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the optimized overall performance of the site. Memcached is used by plenty of websites, including popular portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is an evidence of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
