Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the created load substantially. Every time a page on an application-powered site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a specific webpage. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see old content. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for every website that entices numerous visitors, since it will make it extremely fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached content caching system comes as an upgrade with every Linux website hosting package that we are offering and you can begin using it as soon as you activate it, as the extension that it needs so as to function correctly is already present on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each shared web hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use Memcached, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 MB, specifies the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A regularly visited Internet site with a large-sized database may require more memory to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you would like to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with a couple of clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the system memory. These things determine how many websites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your info. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one large-sized website, for example. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular web-based applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and many companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to optimize the speed of their sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with just several clicks of the mouse. You can optimize the performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-based web app you’re using or how popular the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount rises immensely with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching information every time somebody visits your site, so, once enough information has been cached, you will notice the lowered load on the server and the optimized overall performance of the Internet site. Memcached is being used by numerous websites, including popular portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which verifies the effectiveness of the caching system.
