Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and decrease the generated server load greatly. Every time a webpage on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given webpage. When any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing outdated content. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for every website that entices many viewers, as it will make it blazing-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can use Memcached with all cloud hosting that we offer. It is available as an upgrade, which you can order with only a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for heavy-traffic websites with large-sized databases and numerous users. Thus, you can supercharge the overall performance of any script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using Memcached 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’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use Memcached to boost the speed of any script-powered site, including those based on famous applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated servers offered by us and the only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each dedicated machine is tied to a particular amount of memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to optimize the load speed of very heavy websites enormously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will start caching data as soon as it is activated, so soon after that, you will distinguish the optimized performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. Lots of sites use Memcached to enhance their efficiency, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
