Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the created load considerably. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a particular webpage. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for every site that draws many visitors, since it will make it super-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the PHP extension required for it is pre-installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can start 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 websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you want. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you own a traffic-consuming website with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to improve the loading speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on widely used web apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can increase the overall performance of any website, regardless of what script-driven app you are using or how busy the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount grows substantially with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching data anytime somebody browses your site, so, as soon as enough info has been stored, you will see the decreased load on your dedicated server and the enhanced overall performance of the website. Memcached is being used by plenty of websites, including popular portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
