Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and reduce the generated server load substantially. Every time a page on an app-powered Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a specific page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is a perfect solution for any site that has lots of viewers, since it will make it open faster and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a web hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your shared web hosting plan with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the PHP extension needed for it is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a large-size website with a lot of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case 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 setup requires several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much information it will cache, i.e. there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached to speed up any script-driven site, including those based on widely used Internet applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the caching platform is offered with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own large-scale Internet sites, you can boost their overall performance effortlessly and the lowered load on your virtual server will enable you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store content depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be tremendous. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven application, no matter if you’ve set it up on your own or you are using a ready-made one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with only several clicks. You can enhance the performance of any website, regardless of what script-powered app you rely on or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount rises significantly with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching content every time someone visits your site, so, once sufficient information has been stored, you will perceive the lowered load on the dedicated server and the improved performance of your Internet site. The Memcached system is used by lots of sites, including famous portals like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of the effectiveness of the caching system.
