Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can boost the performance of your website and decrease the produced load substantially. Every time a page on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given web page. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see old data. Memcached is a perfect option for any website that lures a lot of viewers, since it will make it lightning-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting package offered by us and if you want to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to activate it in several simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache info, so for plenty of websites (or for one resource-hungry site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers will open lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached object caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated packages and since it works with any script-driven web app, you can use it for each website that you host on our platform, no matter what application you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-built application, etc. You can request the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things determine the number of the websites that will use Memcached and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two things are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can take full advantage of Memcached with any kind of site and both you and your visitors will quickly spot the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with just a couple of clicks. You can optimize the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-based software app you rely on or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases immensely with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching content every time somebody visits your website, so, as soon as sufficient info has been cached, you will distinguish the reduced load on the server and the enhanced performance of your site. Memcached is being used by many websites, including popular portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the caching system.
