Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated load tremendously. Anytime a page on an app-powered site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a particular web page. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for any website that entices lots of viewers, since it will make it extra-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each cloud website hosting package offered by our company and if you’d like to use it for any script-based site that you host on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to enable it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache info, so for multiple websites (or for one resource-absorbing site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any time. With the Memcached caching system, any script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will open extra-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add Memcached to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer and make use of its full potential for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things define how many sites can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to store your info. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for one traffic-heavy website, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those based on widespread web-based apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and lots of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with every VPS server that we are offering on the condition that you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to take advantage of the full potential of this caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared plan. This will enable you to use Memcached for lots of sites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the VPS. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-powered web applications like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will begin storing content and you’ll observe the improved performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers that we offer and the only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on popular web-based applications – for example, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-powered community portal. Each server comes with a specific amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to increase the load speed of very heavy websites tremendously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start storing data as soon as it is enabled, so shortly after that, you will note the enhanced performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on the dedicated machine. Lots of websites use the Memcached system to increase their efficiency, including famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
