Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and decrease the generated load drastically. Every time a web page on an application-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a given webpage. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never end up seeing outdated data. Memcached is a perfect choice for every site that attracts a lot of visitors, since it will boost its loading speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every hosting plan that we’re offering and in case you want to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to enable it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache info, so for multiple sites (or for one busy site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, each script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers will load amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the account, you can enable it with just a few mouse clicks. The content caching platform is perfect for any script-driven web application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-developed application, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a traffic-consuming website with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will improve the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is included by default with each VPS server that we offer on the condition that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to use the full potential of this content caching system. The more powerful VPS package you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared package. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for numerous websites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading your server. The caching system is ideal for script-driven software applications such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you activate Memcached, it will start storing data and you will distinguish the optimized performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can improve the overall performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-powered web app you rely on or how heavy the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases seriously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching information anytime somebody accesses your website, so, as soon as enough data has been stored, you’ll detect the lowered load on your server and the improved overall performance of your website. The Memcached system is being used by plenty of sites, among them popular portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which demonstrates the efficiency of the Memcached system.
