Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated load substantially. Every time a page on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a given page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for every website that attracts plenty of viewers, since it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your hosting package with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension required for it is already installed on our advanced 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 sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered 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 in case you own a high-traffic website with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the content caching platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much information it will cache, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to boost the speed of any script-powered site, including those based on widely used web-based applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we’re offering in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the memory caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The activation requires a couple of mouse clicks and you will distinguish the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the particular VPS plan that you have selected, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple heavy websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other software app and decrease the load on your server, which will enable you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package instead of switching to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which proves its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated hosting services that we offer and the sole requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on popular web apps – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each dedicated server is tied to a specific amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the speed of extremely busy websites immensely, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start caching info as soon as it is enabled, so shortly thereafter, you will note the optimized overall performance of your sites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. Numerous sites use Memcached to increase their efficiency, among them popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
