Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the created server load considerably. Every time a webpage on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a specific web page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing old content. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for any website that attracts many viewers, as it will make it faster than light and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached content caching system with all shared plans offered by us. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can acquire with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one defines the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for traffic-intensive sites with large-sized databases and plenty of simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can boost the performance of any script-powered site hosted on our servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your account, you can add it with only a couple of mouse clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is perfect for any script-powered web app like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built app, and depending on your requirements, you will be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you own a popular website with lots of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will increase the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much better loading times.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by us and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on popular web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community website. Each server comes with a particular amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the speed of very large websites immensely, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start storing content as soon as it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll detect the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on your server. Numerous sites use the Memcached system to improve their efficacy, among them famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
