Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your website and reduce the generated server load drastically. Every time a webpage 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 procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given webpage. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is an ideal option for any website that draws numerous visitors, as it will make it extremely fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each shared hosting package offered by our company and if you wish to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get 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 information, so for lots of websites (or for one single busy site), you should get more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, any script-driven website hosted on our servers will load amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s activation requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to increase the loading speed of any script-powered site, including those based on popular software applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform via the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The configuration requires several clicks and you will notice the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you have selected, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-heavy websites. You can use Memcached with websites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other application and decrease the load on your virtual server, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which proves its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this object caching system as soon as your server is completely ready, without the need to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve picked, but as our servers are pretty powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-intensive sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to accelerate the overall performance of extremely popular Internet sites effortlessly and you will see the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database calls. You can use the Memcached caching system with any database-driven portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
