Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your website and lessen the created server load immensely. Every time a web page on an application-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a given web page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see outdated content. Memcached is a perfect choice for every Internet site that has numerous visitors, as it will make it amazingly fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

The Memcached caching system is available as an upgrade with each and every Linux hosting offered by our company and you will be able to begin using it the moment you order it, since the PHP extension that it requires so as to function correctly is already installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each web hosting package and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A busy website with a large-size database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you would like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any moment with a few clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory caching platform is suitable for any script-powered software app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-made one, and based on your demands, you will be able to select two separate features – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you have a traffic-intensive Internet site with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will increase the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster load speeds.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with just a few mouse clicks. You can enhance the performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-based software app you are using or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases substantially with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching data anytime somebody accesses your site, so, as soon as sufficient information has been cached, you’ll distinguish the reduced load and the optimized performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is being used by lots of websites, including famous portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is an evidence of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
