Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can increase the overall performance of your website and lessen the produced server load significantly. Every time a webpage on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a specific page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see old content. The platform is an ideal solution for any website that lures numerous visitors, as it will boost its speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system is available as an upgrade with each and every Linux website hosting package offered by our company and you’ll be able to start using it once you activate it, as the extension that it requires in order to perform properly is already installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every web hosting package and a brand new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which comes in increments of 16 MB, indicates the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A popular Internet site with a very large database may need more memory to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you would like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any point with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached data caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages and since it works with any script-based software application, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our platform, regardless of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-developed application, etc. You can add the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things indicate how many websites will use the Memcached caching system and the amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache your information. The two features are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and the website visitors will quickly note the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by us and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on widely used apps – for instance, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each server is tied to a certain amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to increase the loading speed of extremely heavy sites immensely, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will begin storing data the moment it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you will observe the enhanced performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on your dedicated server. A lot of Internet sites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficacy, including famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
