Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced server load greatly. Every time a page on an app-powered site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a given web page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for any site that has numerous viewers, since it will make it load much faster and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system comes as an upgrade with every website hosting that we’re offering and you can start using it the moment you enable it, as the PHP extension that it needs in order to perform properly is already present on our leading-edge cloud platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every shared hosting plan and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic Internet site with a large database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you need to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any time with several clicks.

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 make use of its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things show how many websites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your content. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not tied to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single traffic-hungry Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its nature, including those based on widely used software apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and lots of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to enhance the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can optimize the performance of any website, regardless of what script-based app you rely on or how popular the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows enormously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching content each time someone accesses your site, so, as soon as enough info has been cached, you will see the decreased load on your dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by many websites, including famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which proves the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
