Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and reduce the produced server load immensely. Every time a page on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a particular webpage. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is an ideal choice for any Internet site that has lots of viewers, since it will increase its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached object caching system with all hosting plans that we’re offering. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for high-traffic websites with large-size databases and numerous visitors. Thus, you can enhance the loading speed of every script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached data caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated plans and since it works with any script-powered app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what app you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom app, etc. You can order the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things indicate the number of the sites that will use Memcached and how much memory the system will be able to use to cache your data. The two features are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make use of Memcached with any sort of website and both you and the visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with only a few clicks. You can optimize the performance of any website, no matter what script-powered web app you’re using or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases enormously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching information anytime somebody opens your website, so, as soon as enough info has been stored, you will detect the reduced load on the dedicated server and the improved overall performance of your website. Memcached is used by plenty of websites, including popular portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which verifies the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
