Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and decrease the created server load immensely. Every time a web page on an app-powered Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a specific webpage. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing old content. The platform is an ideal choice for any site that entices many visitors, since it will make it faster than light and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can use the Memcached memory caching system with all cloud hosting plans that we’re offering. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can get with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP 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 subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first part shows the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘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 have, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for high-demand sites with large databases and lots of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can optimize the loading speed of any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-driven app, you can use it for any website that you host on our platform, no matter what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-developed app, etc. You can order the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things specify how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your information. The two things are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and the site visitors will swiftly perceive the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available as standard with all VPS web hosting plans ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires to work correctly is compiled when the virtual server is set up, so you can begin using the memory caching platform once your brand-new server is ready. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the less powerful ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of multiple websites hosted on the virtual server simultaneously and to reduce the load on the machine even if you have resource-consuming script-powered web portals with plenty of viewers. The caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom-made one, and you will observe the faster overall performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can improve the overall performance of any website, regardless of what script-based software app you rely on or how busy the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows immensely with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching info every time somebody opens your site, so, as soon as sufficient info has been cached, you’ll see the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the optimized overall performance of the site. Memcached is used by lots of websites, including famous portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
