Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced load significantly. Anytime a webpage on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a certain page. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old content. The platform is an excellent option for any Internet site that draws plenty of visitors, as it will make it astonishingly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each shared hosting account that we are offering and in case you wish to use it for any script-based website that you host on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache content, so for plenty of websites (or for one traffic-consuming site), you may want to get more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, every script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will open blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we’re offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things indicate the number of the sites that can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to cache your data. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one busy site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those that are based on widespread web-based applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to enhance the performance of their sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this distributed memory caching system once your dedicated server is configured, without needing to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have chosen, but as our servers are pretty powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-demanding websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to optimize the overall performance of extremely heavy sites without any effort and you’ll distinguish the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven online portal, including those that are based on famous CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
