Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the performance of your Internet site and decrease the generated server load significantly. Anytime a web page 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 procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a given webpage. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data. Memcached is a perfect choice for any Internet site that lures many viewers, as it will make it open much faster and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each web hosting account that we offer and in case you would like to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache info, so for lots of websites (or for one resource-intensive site), you’d better order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, any script-powered website hosted on our servers will load extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The memory caching platform is suitable for any script-powered software app like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom application, and based on your necessities, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a high-demand Internet site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will enhance the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we offer if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with just several clicks of the mouse. You can enhance the performance of any site, regardless of what script-powered application you’re using or how heavy the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows tremendously with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will start caching content every time someone browses your site, so, as soon as sufficient information has been stored, you’ll see the lowered load on your server and the enhanced overall performance of the website. The Memcached system is used by many sites, among them popular portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
