Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and decrease the generated server load greatly. Every time a page on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a given webpage. If any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see outdated content. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for every site that draws numerous viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

You can make use of Memcached with all shared website hosting plans offered by us. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can acquire with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for frequently visited sites with large databases and lots of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can increase the loading speed of every script-based site hosted on our servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the data caching platform’s activation takes a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much info can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is exceptionally flexible in this regard and we do not tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to increase the loading speed of any script-powered website, including those based on famous Internet applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is offered by default with each and every VPS server offered by us on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra money to be able to take advantage of the maximum capacity of this object caching system. The more powerful package you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared plan. This will enable you to use Memcached for many Internet sites, regardless of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your virtual server. The caching system is perfect for script-powered software apps such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Soon after you enable the Memcached system, it will start storing info and you’ll perceive the enhanced performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated web hosting plans that we offer and the one and only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on popular applications – for example, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each dedicated server comes with a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to speed up extremely popular sites substantially, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start storing info the moment it is activated, so soon thereafter, you will see the optimized performance of your websites and the reduced load on your server. Lots of websites use Memcached to increase their effectiveness, including famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
