Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can boost the performance of your website and lessen the created server load considerably. Anytime a web page on an application-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a given web page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never see old content. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for every website that draws numerous visitors, since it will make it extra-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a web hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your hosting plan with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the PHP extension needed for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a resource-requiring website with lots of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by us and use its full potential for any script-powered site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the memory. These things show how many sites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your info. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-requiring website, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those based on widely used Internet apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and plenty of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can improve the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-driven web application you’re using or how busy the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows considerably with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching data each time someone visits your website, so, once sufficient data has been stored, you will notice the lowered load and the improved performance of the website. Memcached is being used by many sites, including famous portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which shows the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
