Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and reduce the created load significantly. Every time a web page on an application-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a given page. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The platform is a perfect option for any site that has many visitors, as it will make it super-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add Memcached to your web hosting plan with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the PHP extension needed for it is pre-installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a larger site with lots of content, you may need more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the sites hosted in the account, you can enable it with only a few clicks. The caching platform is ideal for any script-powered software app like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built one, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you run a regularly visited site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will increase the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can increase the performance of any site, irrespective of what script-based software application you’re using or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows seriously with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will start caching data each time somebody browses your site, so, once enough content has been stored, you’ll distinguish the decreased load and the optimized performance of your website. Memcached is used by plenty of sites, among them popular portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the caching system.
