Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and lessen the produced load drastically. Every time a web page on an app-powered site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a specific webpage. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. Memcached is a perfect solution for any website that entices plenty of viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a shared website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your shared web hosting plan with just a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the necessary extension is pre-installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you own a traffic-hungry website with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated plans and since it works with any script-driven software app, you can use it for each site that you host on our servers, no matter what app you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-built application, etc. You can order the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things show the number of the websites that will use Memcached and how much system memory the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two things are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and the site visitors will quickly distinguish the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company and the sole condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on famous web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each server comes with a different amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to enhance the load speed of very popular sites enormously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start caching information once it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you will observe the improved overall performance of your sites and the lowered load on the dedicated server. Numerous websites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their efficacy, including famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
