Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and lessen the created load tremendously. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a particular web page. When any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is an excellent choice for every website that lures a lot of viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-based sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached caching system to your shared web hosting plan with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary PHP extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you need. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you own a busy website with a lot of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-based app, you can use it for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what app you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-developed application, etc. You can order the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things specify how many websites will use the Memcached caching system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your info. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached with any sort of site and both you and the visitors will quickly see the difference in the performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can increase the overall performance of any website, no matter what script-based application you rely on or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases tremendously with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching data anytime somebody accesses your website, so, once sufficient data has been stored, you will detect the reduced load on the dedicated server and the improved overall performance of your website. The Memcached system is being used by many websites, among them popular portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is an evidence of the effectiveness of the caching system.
