Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and lessen the created server load substantially. Anytime a page on an app-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a given page. If any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing old content. The platform is an excellent solution for any site that entices plenty of visitors, as it will make it amazingly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached content caching system with all Linux hosting offered by our company. It is available as an upgrade, which you can activate with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for high-demand sites with large databases and plenty of users. In this way, you can optimize the loading speed of any script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated service that we offer and use its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate how many sites can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to store your info. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single traffic-intensive Internet site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its type, including those that are based on popular software applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to optimize the performance of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any site, irrespective of what script-based application you’re using or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount rises seriously with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching information anytime somebody visits your site, so, as soon as enough info has been stored, you will detect the decreased load on the dedicated machine and the improved performance of the website. The Memcached system is being used by lots of websites, among them famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which confirms the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
