Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and lessen the produced load greatly. Every time a webpage on an application-powered site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a certain webpage. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never see outdated data. The platform is a perfect option for every website that attracts a lot of visitors, as it will make it extremely fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each shared website hosting account offered by us and in case you want to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache data, so for a lot of sites (or for one single resource-intensive site), you’d better order more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any point. With Memcached, every script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will load much faster.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer and use its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the memory. These things define the number of the sites that can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to cache your data. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not bound to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one traffic-intensive website, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those based on widespread web-based apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to optimize the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can enhance the performance of any website, regardless of what script-driven software application you rely on or how large the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases considerably with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will begin caching info each time someone accesses your site, so, as soon as sufficient info has been cached, you’ll detect the reduced server load and the improved overall performance of your site. The Memcached caching system is being used by a lot of sites, including famous portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
