Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated server load immensely. Every time a page on an application-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a particular page. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see old data. The platform is an excellent option for any site that draws plenty of visitors, as it will make it open much faster and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-based websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached caching system to your shared hosting package with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the required PHP extension is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a high-demand website with a lot of content, you may need more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the object caching platform’s setup requires a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is already installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much data it will cache, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very popular, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can employ Memcached to accelerate any script-powered website, including those that are based on famous web applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with just a few clicks. You can boost the performance of any website, no matter what script-powered software application you’re using or how popular the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows seriously with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching content every time someone accesses your site, so, once sufficient information has been cached, you’ll perceive the reduced server load and the enhanced overall performance of the website. The Memcached system is used by lots of sites, including popular portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
