Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the performance of your site and reduce the produced load immensely. Anytime a web page on an app-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a given page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never see out-of-date data. The platform is an ideal solution for any site that draws lots of viewers, as it will make it blazing-fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting plan offered by us and you will be able to begin using it once you add it, as the extension that it needs so as to function correctly is already installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with every shared web hosting plan and a new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is available in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic Internet site with a large-size database may require more memory to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you want to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given time with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with only a couple of mouse clicks. The object caching platform is perfect for any script-powered application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-built app, and based on your requirements, you will be able to select two separate things – how many websites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you own a high-demand website with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will improve the performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster loading speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with just several clicks. You can enhance the performance of any site, regardless of what script-based software app you rely on or how heavy the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases immensely with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching content each time someone opens your website, so, as soon as sufficient data has been stored, you will see the lowered load on your dedicated machine and the improved overall performance of your website. Memcached is used by numerous websites, including famous portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which proves the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
