Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the performance of your website and reduce the generated load immensely. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a given web page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for every website that draws lots of visitors, since it will make it ultra-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each web hosting package that we are offering and if you would like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache info, so for lots of websites (or for one single large site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, any script-based website hosted on our servers will load blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things determine how many sites can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to store your information. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not bound to a particular amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one large-scale site, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those based on widely used web applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, 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

When you obtain a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the platform is available with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own resource-demanding websites, you can accelerate their performance without any effort and the reduced load on the virtual server will permit you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, regardless of whether you have set it up on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with only a couple of clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any site, no matter what script-based web app you’re using or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises tremendously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will start caching content every time someone browses your website, so, once enough data has been cached, you’ll perceive the lowered load on the dedicated server and the enhanced overall performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is used by a lot of sites, among them popular portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
