Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and lessen the created load significantly. Every time a webpage on an application-driven website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a specific webpage. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for every website that attracts numerous visitors, since it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each and every shared web hosting that we offer and you will be able to begin using it once you order it, since the extension that it needs so as to work properly is already installed on our avant-garde cloud platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every shared web hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites which can use Memcached, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic website with a large database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you wish to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with a few mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the system memory. These things define how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your data. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one large website, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its type, including those based on popular applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes for free with all dedicated servers that we offer and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on popular web-based applications – for example, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated machine comes with a given amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the speed of very popular websites seriously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start storing content as soon as it is activated, so soon after that, you will notice the enhanced overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on your server. Lots of sites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficacy, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
