Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated load substantially. Every time a page on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a particular webpage. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for every website that lures a lot of visitors, since it will make it extra-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each website hosting plan that we are offering and if you wish to use it for any script-based website that you host on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache info, so for many websites (or for one single resource-hungry site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With Memcached, every script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will load extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by us and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your information. You can select them independently, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single busy site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those that are based on widely used software apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to optimize the performance of their sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes for free with all dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web-based apps – for instance, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered community site. Each server is tied to a different amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to increase the loading speed of very busy sites enormously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start caching information as soon as it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you will see the improved overall performance of your websites and the lowered load on the dedicated server. A lot of Internet sites use Memcached to improve their efficacy, including famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
