Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the created server load immensely. Anytime a web page on an app-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a given page. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for any Internet site that has a lot of viewers, as it will make it open faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

If you host script-powered websites in a website hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached caching system to your shared hosting plan with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our innovative cloud 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 (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you wish. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you manage a large site with a lot of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required 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 select how many Internet sites can use it and how much data can be cached, in other words – there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to improve the speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on famous Internet apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS servers ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires so as to work properly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching platform the moment your brand-new VPS is completely operational. The system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the lower-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS simultaneously and to decrease the load on the machine even if you’ve got popular script-based online portals with multiple visitors. The Memcached platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom one, and you will see the faster performance shortly after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated service offered by us and the sole requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on widely used Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each server comes with a specific amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to improve the loading speed of very heavy websites seriously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will begin storing data as soon as it’s activated, so soon thereafter, you’ll see the enhanced overall performance of your sites and the decreased load. Many Internet sites use Memcached to enhance their effectiveness, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
