Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and lessen the generated server load substantially. Every time a page on an app-powered website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a given web page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for any website that draws plenty of viewers, since it will make it extremely fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

When you host script-driven websites in a web hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your plan with just a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our advanced cloud platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you own a resource-absorbing site with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages offered by us when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform through the section with the very same name. The setup takes several clicks of the mouse and you’ll notice the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that Memcached can take advantage of to store info depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve selected, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several content-rich Internet sites. You can use Memcached with websites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other software app and decrease the load on your VPS, which will enable you to continue using the current package instead of moving to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a confirmation of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those based on famous applications – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each dedicated machine comes with a particular amount of system memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to optimize the load speed of very heavy sites tremendously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin storing info once it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll note the enhanced performance of your sites and the reduced load on the dedicated server. A lot of sites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficacy, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
