Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated server load drastically. Anytime a page on an application-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a specific webpage. In case any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is an ideal choice for any website that draws numerous visitors, since it will make it load faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system comes as an upgrade with every Linux website hosting offered by our company and you can start using it the moment you add it, since the extension that it requires in order to run correctly is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with each and every web hosting package and a new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A regularly visited site with a large-sized database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you’d like to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any time with several clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-powered site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your data. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single resource-consuming website, for instance. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widely used web applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs to perform correctly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can begin using the object caching platform as soon as your brand new server is fully functional. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to accelerate the overall performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS server simultaneously and to lower the load even if you have traffic-consuming script-based websites with a lot of viewers. The Memcached platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom-made script, and you’ll observe the faster overall performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

When you purchase one of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform as standard and you can set it up for each Internet site that you host on your dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing info as people open your site, so you will detect the results of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the platform for numerous sites or for an extremely busy Internet site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will allow you to speed up any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to enhance the performance of your dedicated machine.
