Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced load immensely. Every time a page on an application-powered site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a given webpage. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date content. Memcached is a perfect choice for every Internet site that lures numerous viewers, since it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a shared website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add Memcached to your shared web hosting plan with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our innovative cloud platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you own a resource-hungry site with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the platform’s setup requires several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to increase the loading speed of any script-powered site, including those that are based on widely used web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with just several clicks. You can boost the performance of any website, regardless of what script-powered web application you are using or how large the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount rises significantly with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching content every time someone visits your site, so, as soon as enough info has been cached, you will see the lowered load on your dedicated server and the improved overall performance of the website. Memcached is being used by many websites, among them famous portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is an evidence of the efficiency of the caching system.
