Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the performance of your website and lessen the created load tremendously. Anytime a web page on an app-driven Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a specific webpage. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never end up seeing outdated data. The platform is an excellent option for every Internet site that lures many viewers, as it will make it lightning-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-powered websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared web hosting plan with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a traffic-hungry site with lots of data, you may need more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can add it with just a few clicks. The data caching platform is suitable for any script-driven web app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made one, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you run a traffic-consuming site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will increase the performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages offered by us when you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform via the section with the same name. The setup takes several mouse clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to cache info depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve picked, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several regularly visited sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other software application and lower the load on your virtual server, which will allow you to continue using the current package rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which proves its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we offer if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with just a couple of clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-based app you are using or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount rises enormously with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching content each time somebody visits your site, so, as soon as sufficient info has been cached, you’ll perceive the reduced load on the dedicated machine and the optimized overall performance of the site. The Memcached system is being used by many sites, including famous portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which proves the efficiency of the caching system.
