Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the performance of your site and decrease the generated load greatly. Every time a web page on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, 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 the content that should be shown on a specific page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for any website that draws a lot of visitors, as it will make it incredibly fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each shared web hosting package that we’re offering and in case you wish to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache info, so for many sites (or for one resource-hungry site), you may want to get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven website hosted on our servers will open blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the object caching platform’s activation requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much data it will cache, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to boost the speed of any script-powered site, including those that are based on widely used web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by our company and the one and only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on widely used applications – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated server is tied to a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate the load speed of very large sites noticeably, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start caching information the moment it’s enabled, so shortly after that, you will detect the enhanced overall performance of your sites and the lowered load on your dedicated machine. Many sites use the Memcached system to enhance their effectiveness, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
