Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the created load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an app-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a given page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old content. Memcached is an ideal option for any website that has plenty of visitors, since it will make it open faster and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each website hosting plan that we offer and if you would like to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in several simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache information, so for lots of websites (or for one single large-scale site), you’d better get more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, any script-powered website hosted on our servers will open extra-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and make use of its full potential for any script-powered site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the system memory. These things define the number of the sites that can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to store your information. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single frequently visited site, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those based on widespread web-based applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and lots of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to enhance the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the memory caching system as soon as your dedicated server is completely ready, without having to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you have picked, but since our servers are pretty powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to increase the performance of very large Internet sites with ease and you will observe the difference soon after the Memcached caching system starts caching database queries. You can make the most of the caching system with any database-powered site, including those based on popular CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
