Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your site and lessen the produced load greatly. Every time a webpage on an app-powered site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a specific page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never see old content. Memcached is a perfect solution for any site that entices lots of viewers, since it will boost its loading speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached content caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based software application, you can use it for any site that you host on our servers, no matter what app you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-built one, etc. You can add the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things determine the number of the websites that will use the Memcached system and how much memory the system will be able to use in order to cache your content. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any type of website and both you and your site visitors will swiftly distinguish the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS

You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans offered by us when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform via the section with the exact same name. The configuration takes a few mouse clicks and you’ll notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can employ to store information depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have chosen, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple traffic-hungry Internet sites. You can use Memcached with websites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based application and lower the load on your VPS, which will enable you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package instead of switching to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated hosting that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on widely used web apps – for example, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven social network. Each dedicated machine is tied to a particular amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to enhance the speed of very large websites enormously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin storing info as soon as it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll detect the optimized performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on your server. A lot of Internet sites use Memcached to boost their efficacy, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
