Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the created load immensely. Anytime a page on an application-driven website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a given web page. When any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing old data. Memcached is a perfect solution for any website that has numerous visitors, as it will increase its speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every hosting package that we are offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache data, so for plenty of websites (or for one single large site), you may want to order more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With Memcached, each script-based site hosted on our servers will load faster than the speed of light.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can add it with only a few clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory object caching platform is suitable for any script-based application like Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made application, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you have a traffic-intensive Internet site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will improve the performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with every virtual private server that we’re offering provided that you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the power of this data caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for numerous Internet sites, regardless of how popular they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your server. The Memcached caching system is excellent for script-based software applications like OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you enable the Memcached system, it will begin storing data and you will notice the enhanced performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with only a few clicks. You can optimize the overall performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-driven web app you’re using or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases substantially with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching information every time somebody opens your site, so, as soon as sufficient information has been cached, you’ll notice the reduced server load and the enhanced performance of your Internet site. The Memcached system is being used by plenty of websites, among them popular portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is an evidence of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
