Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and decrease the created server load greatly. Every time a web page on an app-powered website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a given page. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The platform is an ideal option for every Internet site that draws lots of viewers, as it will make it extremely fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached data caching system is offered as an upgrade with every cloud hosting plan offered by us and you’ll be able to begin using it as soon as you order it, as the extension that it needs in order to perform correctly is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each and every shared web hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, indicates the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A regularly visited Internet site with a large database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you need to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering and use its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the system memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your info. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-consuming Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular web-based apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can enhance the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-powered software application you’re using or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount rises immensely with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will start caching information anytime someone visits your site, so, as soon as enough data has been cached, you’ll perceive the lowered server load and the optimized performance of the website. The Memcached system is being used by many websites, including famous portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the caching system.
