Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your site and lessen the generated load drastically. Every time a page on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a certain web page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never see old content. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for any Internet site that has many viewers, as it will make it load much faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your shared web hosting package with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet 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 add memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a resource-intensive site with lots of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add Memcached to any of the semi-dedicated services offered by us and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since one instance is not bound to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single resource-intensive Internet site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widespread web applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and plenty of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires so as to work correctly is compiled when the VPS is set up, so you can start using the memory caching platform once your brand new VPS server is completely ready. The system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the low-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to enhance the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the server at the same time and to decrease the load even if you run resource-heavy script-based web pages with plenty of viewers. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom-developed script, and you will detect the faster performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with just several mouse clicks. You can improve the overall performance of any website, regardless of what script-based software application you are using or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases enormously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching content anytime somebody browses your website, so, as soon as sufficient data has been stored, you’ll perceive the decreased load on your server and the optimized performance of your Internet site. Memcached is being used by a lot of sites, including famous portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is an evidence of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
