Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and lessen the produced server load considerably. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a certain web page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see old content. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for any website that lures a lot of visitors, as it will increase its loading speed and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached content caching system with all Linux cloud web hosting that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can obtain with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for traffic-heavy sites with very large databases and lots of users. In this way, you can accelerate the performance of any script-based website hosted on our servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached content caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based software application, you can use it for any Internet site that you host on our platform, no matter what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-built application, etc. You can request the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things specify the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your data. The two things are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any sort of website and both you and your website visitors will quickly distinguish the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with just a few clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any website, no matter what script-driven software application you rely on or how busy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount rises immensely with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching data anytime someone accesses your site, so, as soon as sufficient data has been stored, you’ll detect the reduced load on the dedicated server and the enhanced overall performance of the website. The Memcached caching system is being used by numerous sites, among them popular portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
