Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced load substantially. Every time a page on an app-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a particular page. If any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing old content. The platform is a perfect solution for every site that entices a lot of viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system is offered as an upgrade with each and every Linux web hosting that we offer and you will be able to begin using it once you enable it, as the extension that it needs so as to function properly is already present on our cutting-edge cloud platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every shared web hosting plan and a new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which is available in increments of 16 MB, determines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A popular website with a large-size database may need more memory to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you would like to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any time with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things define how many websites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your information. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one large-sized site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those that are based on widely used web apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that we offer on the condition that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the full potential of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful plan you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan. This will permit you to use Memcached for many sites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the virtual server. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-based software apps such as WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start storing information and you will see the improved performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can improve the overall performance of any site, regardless of what script-powered application you rely on or how large the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases enormously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching data every time someone browses your site, so, as soon as sufficient data has been stored, you’ll see the lowered load on your dedicated machine and the enhanced performance of the website. The Memcached system is being used by plenty of sites, among them famous portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is an evidence of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
