Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and lessen the created server load immensely. Every time a webpage on an application-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a certain webpage. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see old data. Memcached is a perfect choice for every site that lures many visitors, as it will accelerate it and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is offered as an upgrade with each and every Linux shared package offered by us and you’ll be able to start using it once you add it, as the extension that it requires so as to run properly is already available on our advanced cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with every plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use Memcached, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, defines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive site with a large-sized database may require more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you need to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any given moment with several clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we’re offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things specify the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your data. You can select them separately, since one instance is not tied to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single traffic-consuming Internet site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widespread web-based apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS packages that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs to function properly is compiled when the VPS server is configured, so you can begin using the caching platform the moment your brand new server is fully functional. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to improve the performance of multiple websites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to reduce the load on the machine even if you manage resource-requiring script-driven sites with a lot of viewers. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-developed script, and you’ll notice the better overall performance soon after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can improve the performance of any website, irrespective of what script-driven app you rely on or how large the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount rises substantially with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching data each time somebody opens your site, so, once enough info has been stored, you will notice the decreased load on your dedicated server and the improved overall performance of your site. Memcached is being used by lots of websites, among them popular portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
