Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and reduce the created server load tremendously. Every time a web page on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a given web page. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see old data. The platform is an excellent choice for every site that has plenty of visitors, since it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a website hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your web hosting plan with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the PHP extension required for it is already installed on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you need. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you run a traffic-consuming website with a lot of content, you may require more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated service and since it works with any script-driven software application, you can use it for every website that you host on our platform, irrespective of what app you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-developed one, etc. You can request the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two different features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things define how many sites will use the Memcached system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your information. The two features are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached with any kind of website and both you and the visitors will quickly note the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans that we are offering in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the object caching platform via the section with the very same name. The setup takes a few mouse clicks and you will detect the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to store content depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you have chosen, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several resource-intensive Internet sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other web application and lower the load on your server, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated servers that we offer and the one and only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on famous software apps – for instance, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven social networking site. Each dedicated machine comes with a different amount of system memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to accelerate the speed of extremely popular websites tremendously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will start storing info once it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you will note the optimized overall performance of your sites and the decreased load on your server. Lots of websites use the Memcached caching system to increase their efficacy, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
