Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and lessen the created load greatly. Anytime a page on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a certain web page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for any Internet site that entices lots of viewers, since it will increase its loading speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every shared web hosting plan offered by us and if you would like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to enable it in several easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache content, so for multiple websites (or for one traffic-hungry site), you’d better order more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, any script-based website hosted on our servers will open extra-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get Memcached as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and since it works with any script-driven software application, you can use it for every site that you host on our servers, irrespective of what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom-built application, etc. You can order the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things define the number of the websites that will use the Memcached system and how much memory the system will be able to use to store your data. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any sort of website and both you and the site visitors will swiftly 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 that we offer and the sole condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on popular Internet applications – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-powered community site. Each dedicated server comes with a different amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to increase the speed of very busy sites considerably, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will start caching info as soon as it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you’ll note the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the lowered load. A lot of sites use the Memcached system to improve their efficacy, including famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
