Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and reduce the created load considerably. Anytime a page on an app-powered Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific web page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see out-of-date data. Memcached is a perfect option for any website that has lots of viewers, since it will make it super-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host script-powered websites in a cloud web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached caching system to your hosting package with only a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a resource-requiring website with a lot of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your account, you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. The memory caching platform is perfect for any script-driven app like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built application, and based on your necessities, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you have a traffic-hungry Internet site with lots of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the overall performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better loading times.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the content caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only several clicks. You can accelerate the overall performance of any site, regardless of what script-driven web app you are using or how busy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases enormously with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching content anytime somebody visits your website, so, as soon as sufficient data has been stored, you will notice the reduced load on the dedicated machine and the improved performance of your website. Memcached is being used by many sites, among them famous portals like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
