Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced load immensely. Every time a page on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a particular webpage. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see outdated content. Memcached is an excellent choice for any site that attracts many viewers, as it will make it lightning-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a cloud web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared web hosting plan with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the required extension is pre-installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a large website with lots of content, you may require more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the memory caching platform’s activation requires several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much information it will cache, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to boost the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached comes by default with all Linux VPS hosting packages that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires to work correctly is compiled when the virtual server is configured, so you can start using the object caching platform as soon as your new virtual server is completely operational. The memory that Memcached can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to boost the performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS server simultaneously and to lower the load even if you manage resource-intensive script-driven web portals with lots of viewers. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-made script, and you’ll distinguish the better performance soon after you start using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can optimize the performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-based app you’re using or how busy the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises enormously with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching info every time someone accesses your site, so, as soon as enough content has been stored, you will see the reduced load on the server and the optimized overall performance of your website. The Memcached system is used by plenty of websites, among them famous portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
