Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the performance of your website and reduce the produced server load substantially. Every time a web page on an application-powered Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a certain page. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see outdated data. The platform is a perfect choice for any site that entices lots of visitors, since it will speed it up and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer and in case you’d like to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache info, so for multiple sites (or for one single popular site), you may want to get more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, each script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will open amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the system memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your content. You can select them separately, since one instance is not bound to a particular amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large-scale Internet site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those based on widely used web applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to optimize the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS

If you get a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the data caching platform comes with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got frequently visited websites, you will be able to enhance their performance without any effort and the decreased load on your server will allow you to keep your current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be great. You can use Memcached with any database-driven web app, regardless of whether you have built it yourself or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated hosting services that we’re offering and the only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on widely used software apps – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered community website. Each dedicated server comes with a particular amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the speed of extremely popular websites greatly, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start caching info the moment it is activated, so soon after that, you’ll detect the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. A lot of websites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficiency, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
