Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated server load substantially. Every time a page on an app-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a specific webpage. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see outdated content. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for every Internet site that attracts many viewers, as it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a shared web hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your hosting plan with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required PHP extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, 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 the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a resource-intensive website with a lot of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, as the caching platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much info can be cached, in other words – there are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to speed up any script-driven site, including those that are based on widely used web-based applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the object caching platform via the section with the same name. The configuration takes several clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store information depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve selected, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple busy sites. You can use Memcached with sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other web-based application and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will allow you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a confirmation of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the machine with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can boost the performance of any website, regardless of what script-driven software application you’re using or how heavy the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount grows tremendously with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching content every time somebody opens your site, so, once sufficient data has been stored, you’ll notice the lowered server load and the optimized performance of your website. Memcached is used by many sites, including popular portals like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which confirms the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
