Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can boost the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated server load immensely. Every time a page on an app-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a particular web page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see out-of-date data. The platform is an excellent solution for every site that entices plenty of viewers, as it will make it blazing-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system is available as an upgrade with each cloud web hosting that we offer and you’ll be able to begin using it as soon as you order it, as the PHP extension that it needs in order to perform properly is already present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with every shared web hosting plan and a brand 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 memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use Memcached, while the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, indicates the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic site with a large-size database may require more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you would like to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any point with a few mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get Memcached as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-based application, you can use it for any website that you host on our platform, regardless of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom one, etc. You can request the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things show the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached and the amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your data. The two things are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and your website visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers that we’re offering and the one and only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on famous Internet applications – for example, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-powered community site. Each dedicated machine comes with a given amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to improve the load speed of extremely popular websites greatly, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will start caching content the moment it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll distinguish the optimized overall performance of your sites and the decreased load on the server. Many sites use the Memcached system to increase their efficacy, among them popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
