Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the performance of your website and lessen the generated server load tremendously. Anytime a web page on an app-driven website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a given webpage. When any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. Memcached is a perfect choice for every Internet site that entices lots of viewers, as it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all Linux shared hosting that we offer. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can acquire with just a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first part reveals the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for busy sites with large-size databases and lots of users. In this way, you can optimize the speed of every script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the system memory. These things show how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your info. You can select them separately, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single traffic-hungry site, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those based on widely used web apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the performance of their sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that we offer and the sole requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on popular web-based applications – for example, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-driven community website. Each dedicated machine is tied to a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to boost the speed of very large websites considerably, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will start caching information the moment it is activated, so soon thereafter, you’ll observe the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the reduced load on your dedicated server. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to improve their effectiveness, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
