Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your website and lessen the generated server load tremendously. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a certain web page. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. Memcached is a perfect choice for every site that has many visitors, since it will make it faster than light and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-based sites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your hosting package with just a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the PHP extension required for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a high-demand website with a lot of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The content caching platform is suitable for any script-powered software application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a tailor-made app, and based on your demands, you will be able to choose two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you have a traffic-hungry website with lots of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will optimize the performance of your websites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster loading speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on famous web apps – for instance, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-driven social networking site. Each dedicated server comes with a given amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to optimize the load speed of extremely busy websites immensely, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin caching content the moment it’s activated, so soon after that, you will distinguish the optimized performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on the dedicated machine. Plenty of websites use Memcached to increase their efficiency, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
